Making has taken off in a multitude of ways at Drew Charter School in Atlanta, GA. Maker VISTA member Khalil Pettway hit the ground running, namely with supporting teachers in their use of STEAM Trunks. These mobile making trunks are available for reservation (which Khalil coordinates) and can be wheeled into campus classrooms for lesson integration. There are trunks for electronics, soldering, construction, arts and crafts, and 3D printing. Khalil has been familiarizing himself with each trunk and different software so that he may offer personalized or customized development support to staff members and educators who are new to the trunks. In particular, Khalil has enjoyed diving into learning more about the 3D printers, in the hopes of quickly becoming an expert resource!
