Education Internship - Metabolic Foundation
About Metabolic Foundation
Metabolic Foundation was started in 2013 to enable local communities to be self-sufficient for their own resources and economic empowerment. We prototype new technologies, showcase promising solutions, educate community entrepreneurs, initiate community fablabs, and create digital resources like tools and guides that lower the threshold for taking action that can jump-start bottom-up prosperity and resilience.
About the Internship
For the 2018-19 school year, Mo-B Lab–a mobile maker lab–will offer after-school activities with 18 schools in Aruba for a period of two weeks each, engaging up to 1400 kids and young adults aged between 4-24.
Metabolic Foundation is taking a new approach to technical education, testing different concepts at different schools and using similar material that is then adapted to the group.
