Invest in our schools, communities, and workforce!
St. George is partnering with Mid-Coast School of Technology to construct a K-8 Career Technical Education (CTE)/Makerspace building adjacent to St. George School. We want to bring the trades, technology, and innovation back to the heart of public education and allow all students, grades K-8, to engage in hands-on/minds-on projects. The new building will include a shop space for carpentry, metalworking, and boatbuilding; an upstairs Makerspace with 3D printers, a laser cutter, and CNC routers; and a classroom project area.
The objectives of this project are to (1) engage students in learning that matters to them, their families, and their community; (2) help students develop the necessary technical, creative thinking, and social-emotional skills to meet existing labor force needs and create new businesses and industries; and (3) strengthen the local economy.
