D11. The STREAM Factory: Students Developing Digital Job Skills

August 2, 2017

The STREAM Factory is a strategic initiative to help students become aware of emerging technology in industry, and develop digital job skills through a work-to-learn program. Students engage multiple disciplines (Science-Technology-Robotics-Engineering-Arts-Mathematics – “STREAM”) as applied knowledge. Students engage the basic process of product concept, product design/engineering, and product manufacturing. The STREAM Factory has developed an actual customer base for which students make products such as T-shirts, posters, brochures, graphic logos, wood plaques, and laser engraved signage. Furthermore, students acquire basic soft skills such as teamwork while producing products as well as basic communication skills needed to interface with customers.
