Accelerate Alaska

The Original MacGuyvers - Renee Fredericks, CITC

May 14, 2020

At CITC’s fab lab, Renee Fredericks helps Alaskan Native students discover that the sky’s the limit. With some basic instruction and training, students are creating on 3D printers, laser and vinyl cutters – to create a wide range of products made from wood, metal and plastic. This type of hands-on learning experience exposes the students to a wide range of design, engineering and architectural concepts in a fun, holistic way that cannot be achieved in the classroom.

When students transform a simple idea into a tangible finished product, they get an overwhelming sense of accomplishment – and they learn that their future is only limited by their imagination.
