The Fab Lab Headquarters
“OPERATION RESTORATION” Digital Badge & Skillcoin Rewards System
The Fab Lab Headquarters Operation will serve as the centralized and purpose-built project meeting space and dedicated location for all JEM Teams and NEXT Steps Partners In Education to co-locate and visually communicate the activities associated with their College Town Service-Learning Projects.
- Select a job for your JEM Team’s College Town Service-Learning Project
- Unlock the secret learning levels of each Fab Lab training course
- Collect digital badges & Skillcoin Rewards to raise funds and secure resources for your service project
- Coordinate an Investor/Mentor Meetup to present your work to “The 17” Legacy Council and your College Town community.
Service Goal #3
Conduct community assessment for STEM++ partners regarding development of the new Fab Lab where emphasis is placed on schedules, plumbing, HVAC Systems (heating and air, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration), electrical systems, graphic presentations, plot/site plans, specifications, and building estimations.
Map Your Location
Add an updated status of this location, its amenities, special features or improvements to the interactive map of the Georgia Piedmont College Town community.
Develop A Master Plan
Walk the property to envision the function and aesthetics of your design. Think about access to power, how different groups of people doing different projects at the same time will coexist, and what parts can be used for green technologies and innovative conservation practices.
Assess Project Cost & Resources
Measure each activity area of your master plan. Consider emergency, capacity, and future growth conditions, functionality of the area (how people and supplies will get in and out), and the materials, supplies, resources and estimated amount of time needed to fully develop each activity area.
The 12 Permaculture Principles
Integrate the 12 Permaculture Principles into your design. Be sure to include social needs, ecological impact, long term use, achievable maintenance and attractive appearance.
Fundraising & Fund Continuity Strategy
Use our Digital Badge & Skillcoin Rewards System to create a detailed budget with your team. Determine what resources you already have and decide how you will acquire the remaining, cash, materials and labor.
Implement Your Plan
Prepare your site, your team, your materials and supplies, then integrate them into a work plan for the day’s activities.
Contributions & wishlist donations will be used to sponsor digital badges and build the financial portfolio for this service project. All donations will be listed in the Junior Southern Barter Club Marketplace and in each NSPIE Members’ virtual account.
