Announcing Student Maker Scholarship

GTA awards $25,000 grant to nurture young makers @7HMS.

We are so excited to share 7hills Makerspace (7HMS) will be launching a Student Maker Scholarship program to nurture ten young makers and two educators in high school or college grades.  Young Maker Scholars will receive a one-year lab membership to the space, and access to tools, supplies, and workshops. In addition, the grant will cover the development of training curriculum and equipment geared towards young makers, some of which will be open to the community.  This scholarship program is made possible by a $25,000 grant from Georgia Technology Authority’s Digital Georgia Program.

Co-founder Greg Richardson will be administering the grant and he’s partnered with members, Pablo Stewart-Harris and Christian Turner to build the initial program calendar over the next several weeks.  

We have decided to start with a focus on creative technologies with classes on lomography, 3D stereography, camera hacking, filmmaking, and more. As the year progresses, students’ interest will drive new programs and classes.
