Robert C. Byrd Institute – Explore the Vault
Hosted by: Robert C. Byrd Institute
May 18 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pmAdmission: Free
Explore the Vault will take place on May 18, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at RCBI's MakerVault in Huntington, WV. Targeting middle- and high-school students, the event will feature a number of maker-based activities in which students can participate. These include learning to solder, through the use of soldering kits; a hands-on demonstration of a Raspberry Pi device and its advanced capabilities; and assembling wooden puzzles created on an X-carve router. The goal of Explore the Vault is to introduce students to and familiarize them with maker technologies, in hopes that they will pursue maker- and STEM-based fields in the future.
The event, hosted by RCBI – a regional leader in job creation, economic development, innovation, and entrepreneurship – will take place in RCBI’s MakerVault, a creative hub where makers come to turn their ideas into a reality. Explore the Vault will target middle- and high-school students in the vicinity of RCBI’s Huntington, West Virginia facility and allow those students to participate in a variety of hands-on, maker activities. Tours of RCBI’s facility will be offered, and refreshments will be served.
