Attention Makers and Dreamers,

Come join UNCW for our ChangeMakers event for the 2019 NC Science Festival! Individuals with disabilities, and friends, ages 4-17 years are encouraged to attend. We will provide opportunities for young people to explore maker technology as part of the Maker Movement. Community partners, people with disabilities, and our team of faculty/staff will be on hand to help you design and engineer in our maker space. This space will allow you to develop something you are passionate about that will solve a problem.

 Some activities will include making:

  • Mechanical Grabber
