MEL'S Garage

What is M.E.L.S. Garage?

Sitting adjacent to other student classrooms, this re-purposed garage space has a meaningful name. The acronym is about connecting Manufacturing & Engineering to Learning Through STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math).

Kristen Messer, be.tech science teacher, commented, “Students love the non-traditional setting with its modular furniture. They become makers, leading each other to figure out which tool works best. The hands-on activities provide high student interest.”

In the maker class, students learned several tools to help them create. While they learned, they studied some of the physics behind material science and design.

All of be.tech’s programs encourage students to find many hands-on applications to bring their learning to life—making it personal, memorable and immediately relevant.
