Discussion about ACE Lab

 Career and Technical Education (CTE) in the Cleburne Independent School District (CISD) is focused on preparing students to excel in the 21st century. The Association of Cleburne Engineering (ACE) Lab is a center for creative minds, providing training and technologies for interdisciplinary collaboration.  Students will create digital designs and then fabricate those designs in the ACE Lab!
 The ACE Lab Initiative began as an outreach project from the Center for Bits and Atoms at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  Each lab within this global network ascribes to the Fab Charter in order to allow users to "make (almost) anything!" 
 The ACE Lab serves to democratize access to technologies and materials that enhance Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) project-based learning.  The Engineering Design or Scientific Inquiry Process is illustrated in the context of projects done in the lab.  
 The ACE Lab is in the Engineering & Robotics Space at Cleburne High School.

Cleburne ISD does not discriminate on the basis of age, sex, handicap, race, color, and/or national origins in its educational programs. Admission into career programs is based on age, grade, interest, aptitude, and ability. Lack of English language will not be a barrier to admission and participation in any educational program.
El Distrito Escolar de Cleburne, no discrimina por razones de edad, sexo, discapacidad, raza, color, y / o el origen nacional para sus programas educativos. Programas se basan en la edad, el grado, el interes, aptitud y capacidad. La falta de idioma Ingles no sera un obstaculo para la admision y participacion en cualquier programa educativo.

  1. An information data packet that has more details about the ACE Lab was sent to the participating Referees. If you are in the North Texas area and wish to obtain information about our lab, please contact Mark McClure or Roy Pena via email at dmcClure@c-isd.com or rpena@c-isd.com. Thanks! -R

@rpena, I reviewed the information data packet that you have provided to the referees. All core machines are installed or there is a clear plan for installation. The lab also provides open access to community members during school hours. I have manually approved the lab.

The ACE Lab is proud to be a part of this world-wide community and be able to add to the creativeness of Makers in our community!

First-year in the ACE Lab. Looking forward to it
