dc.description.abstractIn 2015 the President's Cabinet exercised farsightedness by creating the UTMB Health MakerHealth Space. UTMB's makerspace achievements inspired the idea of creating a makerspace at Galveston's Ball High School to bring makerspace to our next generation of workers - the future health care providers, researchers and biomedical engineers who currently attend Ball High and may one day walk the halls of UTMB as clinicians, scientists and educators. Ensuring a well-trained future workforce for health care and many other fields mandates exposure and training in STEM disciplines. While quality STEM educational experiences can require resources beyond the means of both the school district and individual parents, these "academic resume builders" expose students to higher levels of thinking, laying a foundation that provides greater opportunity and better decision-making when students choose their academic and/or career futures. Our answer to help Galveston ISD provide these higher level learning experiences is to create the UTMB President's Cabinet Fab Lab at Ball High. Our goal is to harness the creativity, curiosity, boundless energy and intelligence of these future members of the UTMB workforce in order to boost their undergraduate educational experience and help make them the most qualified applicants for higher education and career.en_US
