GUILD OF SITHS
Makerspaces have emerged all over the country for local artists, designers, and entrepreneurs to turn ideas into realities. Staten Island Tech embraces the concept of creativity by providing students with resources and opportunities to hone their skills through participation in contests and establishment of businesses.
During the 2016–17 school year, we rolled out a new makerspace/business incubator program called the Staten Island Tech Guild to encourage students to explore their interests with like-minded individuals. To date, we have helped fund and build over 40 independent student projects and have completed over 900 in class projects this past year.
