A Massachusetts nonprofit is offering teens the chance to learn about entrepreneurship, design, and technology in a 13,000-square-foot spaceall for free, the Boston Globe reports.
"We're all feeling real enthusiastic about it," Brianna Drohen, CEO of LaunchSpace, tells the Globe.
"It's something that we've been wanting to do for a while, is have an out-of-school experiencefor local teens."
Teens between the ages of 13 and 17 are invited to come to the Orange Innovation Center in Athol for 20 weeks of hands-on training in a variety of crafts, including woodshop, 2D and 3D printing, leatherworking, textiles, jewelry, electronic fabrication, and digital fabrication.
They'll also get to keep their ceramic bowls, which are part of a fundraising effort to build a concrete foundation for a gas-fired kiln.
"Our pottery program is incredibly popular," Drohen tells the Globe.
"The addition of a gas-fired kiln is critical...
to attract potters from all across the county and support the existing potters from all across the county."
