Integrative STEM Workshops

In conjunction with The Horizon Hub

About The Horizon Hub

CCIU launched a makerspace called The Horizon Hub. It is a place where the cultivation of tomorrow’s innovators will be achieved through a collaborative approach that scaffolds and models various approaches to design thinking and strategies.

The CCIU Horizon Hub team members will utilize the annual NMC Horizon Report findings to fuel the innovation. The report currently identifies makerspaces as important developments in educational technology that should be adopted within one year or less.

Our goal is to demonstrate, through these workshops, how makerspaces can infuse creativity, excitement, and innovation that will transcend educational walls and bring to life a spirit of innovation within the community.
