Cloverdale High School

At the upcoming Chamber of Commerce mixer on Feb. 22, attendees will get the opportunity to explore a brand new asset in the community—Cloverdale High School’s new Technology Center, known colloquially as the maker space.
Superintendent of Schools Jeremy Decker says this will be the first public unveiling of the space and that he hopes it will be the first of many such events to be held there.
The technology center includes a design room, a build room and classrooms. In the design room, students will have access to 3-D printers, a green screen for filming, a sound room and computer work stations for digital design. Students will be able to learn to use a variety of design tools and associated programs, according to a press release from the chamber.
Once the design phase is completed, students can make their design in the build room next door. The build room is outfitted with woodworking tools, laser cutters, a gas-metal arc welder, routers and vinyl cutters. Both spaces are equipped with roll-up doors so that large projects can be moved in and out.
Cloverdale Unified School District students will experience a hands-on educational experience which will help prepare them for tomorrow’s technically oriented workplace, the press release states.
 “The Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce is excited about sharing the opportunities that this new ‘maker’ space will offer to students and businesses in Cloverdale that are looking for skilled interns and employees drawn from our local community,” said Chamber Executive Director Neena Hanchett.
Chamber mixers are held monthly.
The Cloverdale Chamber of Commerce and the Cloverdale Unified School District invite the community to the unveiling of this unique hands-on learning center on Thursday, Feb. 22 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Refreshments will be provided by Cloverdale High School’s new Farm to Table class. For questions, please contact the chamber at 894-4470 or [email protected]
