Classroom

MakeICT’s classroom is a 750 sq ft area for workshops, classes, shared workspace, meetings, events, and other activities.

The classroom is equipped with a full HD digital projector and 15 laptops loaded with Debian Linux, Windows 10, and a slew of software packages.

The classroom, while functional, is still a work in progress. The end-goal includes carpet tile, a drop ceiling, a hallway to provide non-distracting passage into the shop areas, and some concrete work.

Completion of the classroom will cost an estimated $5,540.69.
