The GET (Green Energy Technology) City Collaborative shares sustained informal engineering design experiences for youth in Michigan and North Carolina. We expose youth to advanced digital technology, maker spaces, and a network of experts to advance their understandings of and interest in energy and engineering.
Youth of color have not been widely accepted into the maker community. Despite these inequities such youth are engaging in powerful forms of making in their communities — in ways that are technically rigorous and which promote just and sustainable communities. We highlight some of our youth makers here!
