Camelback has received a $5,000 SRP Grant to create In-school maker space. The Invention Studio at Camelback High would allow students to gather create, invent, and learn in a school makerspace. This space is where students can become creative, innovative and design products using the design- thinking method. The students will learn the process of designing with empathy, identifying a problem, brainstorming solutions, prototyping and testing the product with community profit or nonprofit business partners or even create their own businesses.   There will be career coursework for all freshman and entrepreneurial classes will have full access to the Invention Studio. These sustainable skills will be used by high school students for a lifetime because of its hands-on design-built education to stimulate innovation creativity and entrepreneurship in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and STEA(Art)M careers.
