Designing Your Academic Makerspace to Maximize Outcomes
Do you want to measure the impact of the investment your university is making in makerspaces? This course will help you understand how to invest money, space, and other resources to obtain the results you want.
Making Makerspaces provides the knowledge and best practices that have been used to design, create and sustain safe and productive modern academic makerspaces.
Please share with your students and faculty. See the Engineering World Health Flyer
The chapter may be housed in the Pavlis Honors College instead of Biomedical Engineering because students from other depts and colleges/schools might be interested. There has been some expression of interest from the SoT. Much of what EWH does may be of interest to EEs and MEs and technologists in those fields, as well as BMEs, however, EWH is open to students from all majors.
From the EWH website, EWH:
- Provides students from around the world with the life-changing educational experience of repairing vital medical equipment in the world’s most resource-poor communities.
- In collaboration with local partners in Asia, Africa and Latin America, EWH creates locally-sustainable training programs for biomedical engineering technicians (BMETs).
- Engages the next generation of engineers through K-12 STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curricula, university chapters, and design activities to improve global health.
One of the main foci of EWH is the repair, maintenance, and proper use of medical equipment in developing nations (this is a real problem). There are training opportunities for students as well as opportunities to travel and train locals how to use and maintain medical equipment.
Peer Support for Emerging Second-Stage Entrepreneurs
- Facilitated peer-strategy environment
- Customized content is based on participants needs
- Personalized resource mapping and focused executive coaching

My name is Rachel Levitin and I am the Program Manager for the National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship Program based in Washington, D.C. From its inception, the goal of this program has been to increase the number of STEM professionals in the U.S. workforce. The NDSEG Fellowship Program is a three-year funding opportunity for students in or near the beginning stages of their overall graduate study and it is meant for students who plan to pursue research-based doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. The program provides awarded fellows with: • 36 months of full tuition and mandatory fee coverage at any accredited U.S. institution; • A $1,000 medical health insurance allowance per each year of the three-year program tenure; • And $102,000.00 in stipend payments over three years. Students can start applying to the program as early as their undergraduate senior year and as late as the start of their third year of overall graduate study. The reason we are getting in touch with you today is because we would like to introduce this fellowship opportunity to you and your colleagues. This year’s deadline for a 2017 award is December 9 at 5 p.m. Eastern Time. If this is of interest to you or your colleagues, please let us know! We're happy to answer any and all questions related to the program. Additionally – if you or colleagues at your institution are eligible and interested, panelist registration for the 2017 NDSEG Digital Application Evaluation is now open at https://ndseg.asee.org/panelists. This year’s evaluation panel will be held digitally throughout the month of January 2017. For more information, please contact our team directly. Our team can be reached at NDSEG@asee.org or at (202) 649 – 3831. Respectfully, Rachel Levitin NDSEG Program Manager The NDSEG Program Team at ASEE 1818 N Street NW, Suite 600 Washington, DC 20036 Phone: (202) 649-3831 NDSEG@asee.org
