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).
