Cathedral High School, a philanthropy-based urban independent Catholic School in Boston, MA, expects to open a 15,000 square foot Applied Learning and Visual Arts Center to expand personalized learning opportunities for its students and to serve the community of South Boston. The new center will launch with a 2,500+ square foot “Makerspace,” where students can explore, tinker, design, invent and prototype using a variety of tools and materials such as software, 3D printers, electronics, robotics, crafts, and more.
In partnership with Autodesk, the Catches for Kids Foundation will provide a significant donation of software, hardware and expertise for the new Makerspace with plans to expand the initiative to additional schools in New England.
