Fab Lab Headquarters
“OPERATION RESTORATION” Digital Badge & Skillcoin Rewards System
The NEXT Steps Youth Entrepreneur Program manages the main lines of communication for “Operation Restoration” and our Partners In Education. The Fab Lab War Room “creates a self-sustaining culture of accountability” and helps all College Town stakeholders quickly get up to speed on the progress, current status and any issues that may be facing our JEM Teams.
- 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 #2
NEXT Steps JEM Team will help design, manage and explain the interrelationships between the functions of each College Town Service-Learning Project (accounting, finance, production, marketing, sales, and management) and the application of various STEM++ skills and management functions (planning, organizing, directing, and controlling).
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, aesthetics and design of the Fab Lab. Think about seating, work spaces, collaboration spaces, technology needs, wall space, and amenities needed by the team or any guests that will use the space.
Assess Project Cost & Resources
Measure each activity area of your master plan and consider functionality of each 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 hardware and software technologies, carbon footprint, sustainability, heavy use and traffic, ecological impact, long term use, achievable maintenance and attractive appearances.
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.
