Maker Fellowship


Become a Maker Fellow


Are you interested in product design and development? Have you wondered what it would be like to invent something? Build a robot? Create a new product from scratch?

Kravis Lab for Social Impact is excited to announce its second annual Maker Fellowship program. The Maker Fellowship is a premiere experience for student makers interested in product development and prototyping. During the twelve week program, students will work alongside industry experts at the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) to ideate and fabricate a product of their own. The LACI campus will give students access to professional grade prototyping machinery and will provide a pipeline to internships and mentorships for pioneering startups. 

The weekly workshops will teach:

  • Tools for generative thinking
  • Digital design and 3D modeling
  • Industrial prototyping techniques
  • User interface and experience design

In the final week, students will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges and potential investors. Participants will also receive a certificate in Prototype Design and Development endorsed by the Advanced Prototyping Center at LACI.
