Project Make, Analy High School

 

Project Make is a 21st century shop class where we use state-of-the art tools to make wonderful things.

 

Project Make offers a unique and exciting opportunity for students to explore, discover and create through a variety of hands-on projects and activities. We learn to use some of the coolest tools available for creating and inventing: a laser cutter, a vinyl cutter, multiple 3D printers, and multiple CNC machines. We also do interesting small group activities (for example, popsicle stick bridges, tallest tower) and many hands-on activities including compressed air rockets. You have a chance to be creative with every assignment. There is no homework.

 

Project Make satisfies the practical art elective requirement for graduation and is open to all Analy students grades 9 through 12. Sign up for Project Make during online registration.

 

If you have questions about the program feel free to contact Mr. Hays at whays.ahs@wscuhsd.k12.ca.us or by stopping by the Maker Lab during Tutorial. Where is the Maker Lab anyway? Well, we're out towards the student parking lot near the Ag classroom and Woodshop. In fact, as you approach Woodshop look west and you'll see a sign pointing you towards the Maker Lab entrance. Come check out the lab!
