Mixxer intends to position our organization as a change agent in our community in the movement to overcome racial inequity and the lack of economic mobility that has challenged our community for more than a century.

Mixxer is dedicated to offering Equitable Access in all of our STEAM Experiences. Put simply, the term “Equitable Access” refers to the notion that every student should have the same opportunity as any other student for being taught by a great teacher in a great program. Camps and workshops will provide everything the student needs to learn about and succeed in the chosen subject. During Camps, lunch will be provided as part of the program to strengthen equitability and offer a meal to students who may not have access to lunches when schools are closed.

Mixxer will give our Community Partner Organizations exclusive access to our STEAM Experiences catalog for two weeks before publishing it to the public. 

If you are interested in your organization becoming one of our Community Partner Organizations

or

You work for one of our Community Partner Organizations and need access to our 2021 STEAM Experiences catalog,

 

Contact us at info@wsmixxer.org or   336.265.7362   and we will send you a catalog.

Mixxer is a nonprofit Community Makerspace that is intended to serve everyone in our community that needs access to tools, equipment, and resources needed to create tangible things and develop skills for reaching their full potential as a maker. After building a base membership, comprising mostly of more experienced makers, we want to reach more people that may need support to see themselves as a maker. One program we have activated in our STEAM Experiences program that will deliver 4 STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education programs in 2020, and we will grow that program by 100% in 2021 and again in 2022.

This program will make it possible for us to serve younger makers through focused learning objectives, the ability to earn digital credentials, and offer a guiding hand as these students begin to discover their potential. We sincerely believe that some youth in our community are having to make crucial decisions about their future without sufficiently exploring their interests and talent. Mixxer will deliver quality educational content through certified education professionals, plus something that no other educational institution in our community can deliver – access to diverse and experienced community of makers with life and career experiences as makers.

Your donation will make a positive difference for more students to have access to quality STEAM Education, taught by passionate professional teachers. Your donation will provide low-cost tuition, a backpack with all necessary supplies, and lunch every day for every student in our programs.
