WiFAB Retreat West

“Student engagement comes alive using design thinking in schools. This professional development retreat focuses on challenging students to imagine solutions to problems, and to make their solutions come alive leveraging fab lab tools. UW-Stout is proud to partner with Fox Valley Technical College in developing and delivering this unique, top-quality fab lab professional development to Wisconsin’s K-12 educators.” Bob Meyer, Chancellor, University of Wisconsin-Stout "Using the design process, students learn teamwork, problem solving skills, and the ability to weigh ideas; all things we hear employers want and need from their employees." Randy Hulke, UW-Stout
