Staff at the Krause Center for Innovation at Foothill College held a Dec. 2 ribbon-cutting and grand-opening ceremony for the new Underground Makerspace, which will serve K-14 teachers and students by providing hands-on learning programs using the latest technology.
“We had over 100 people visit the KCI Underground,” said KCI Executive Director Gay Krause of opening day. “Visitors created LED flashlights, paper circuit holiday cards and gift boxes using materials cut with our Cricut Maker. Additionally, we had three Dremel 3-D printers running, along with the new laser cutter, which created acrylic cut and etched keychains commemorating the event.”
