Vocademy is a unique, education-focused makerspace with the goal of being the future of hands-on learning. Our facilities offer a dream workshop which provides access to maker tools and the latest tech to everyone, in addition to teaching anyone the skills and techniques necessary to use the machines available in the facility.
Vocademy has created 3 different subject paths (with more in development) for students to choose from:
- Prototyping & Invention Basic Skills Path
- Metals, Welding, & Fabrication Basic Skills Path
- Costume & Prop-making Basic Skills Path
Once a student begins his/her journey in one track, they will be able to learn essential skills required in each industry and will receive Vocademy‘s Certificate of Completion at the end, along with all completed projects that can be used as a working portfolio. Each Basic Skill Path provides a hands-on learning experience. On top of this class time, students are also provided access to the equipment they have been trained on for 10 hours per week to practice their new skills. With the mix of academic and hands-on, Vocademy and Learn4Life equips each student with the fundamental skills sought by various STEM-related trades/industry, as well as the tools needed to build an impressive portfolio – all while working towards their high school diploma – completely FREE. This knowledge is ideal for any student – whether they plan on continuing to an institution of higher education or if they go immediately into the workforce after high school graduation.
