We are invited to the European Maker Faire. It is important to prove to our students and the general public that we CAN compete on the world scale, even though we are from small town New Brunswick. We are developing Innovators who know that their learning and hard work can make a direct impact on the world; that they have the power and the responsibility to make a difference.
Most of the team is female, which will certainly be an anomaly in the maker/engineering world. We are excited to showcase how we are changing the perception of engineering that is attracting so many girls to make a difference.
To get ready for ROME, they will need to do grant writing, sew table clothes, design and print posters, translate brochures, practice their elevator pitches in both English and French and perhaps even a bit of Italian.
We have already started selling customized laser engraved Swell-like water bottles, but this will not be enough to get us to where we need to go.
Please contact us if we can make some bottles for your organization.
