BC’s RISE MakerSpace is hosting the Makers & Scholars Summer Experience, a series of 4 workshops and makerspace events.  Because everything is online these days, our workshops will focus on data–how to mine it, analyze it, visualize it, and do other interesting things with it.  The workshops are FREE and OPEN TO ALL BC STUDENTS.  Students who participate in 3 or more workshops will receive a certificate as a RISE Learning Institute Maker & Scholar.*

All events will be held on Zoom or Teams.  Please register to receive the links.
