Science, technology and engineering labs, also known as maker spaces, are a growing trend in education. But not every school has one. Then Rhode Island’s Mobile Maker Lab rolls up.
Pulled by a pickup truck, the 28-foot trailer comes outfitted with projects and technology, such as routers and 3-D printers.
The IYRS School of Technology and Trades in Newport helped develop the lab.
"It needs to be flexible and nimble, just like the technology itself," Terry Nathan, IYRS president, told RIPR. "It’s all about being able to conceive a design and then build something."
