Sign-up to be part of a Year Up team to compete in the International Technology & Engineering Education Association’s REACH Challenge. In this design challenge participants will work to develop and create a technological solution to help a member of their community. This solution will help a specific individual overcome a challenge that they have in their daily living. Using the engineering design process and technologies available at the NOVA Fab Lab (Manassas Campus), the team will be able to fabricate and prototype their actual solution. The final design will be submitted for judging into the national competition in December. A Team Mentor will help provide project support and instruction on how to use Fab Lab equipment and software. More information on the REACH Challenge can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfBEPC7b4Gk . Open to NOVA Year Up students only, with sessions taking place at the NOVA Fab Lab (Manassas Campus) on Fridays from 2:00-5:00 pm from October 1st through December 10th (except for Nov. 26th). Additionally, this registration automatically includes free membership into the NOVA Makers program where individuals can use the lab for personal projects and other opportunities.
