WHAT: Fontana Unified School District will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the world’s first Bio Animakerspace, which provides students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience and skills that prepare them for success in biomedical, biomechanical and biotechnological careers.

Housed at Fontana High School (FOHI) and created through a partnership with Garner Holt Education Through Imagination, the Bio Animakerspace provides an environment where students can explore how medical science, engineering, robotics, manufacturing and automation can work together to create solutions to medical and public health challenges.

WHEN: Monday, April 25
4 to 6 p.m.

WHERE: Bio Animakerspace Lab at Fontana High School
9453 Citrus Ave., Fontana

DETAILS: The Bio Animakerspace supports FOHI’s Health Science and Medical Technology pathway, which includes courses in Bio Animatronics and Neuro Prosthetics. The space fully opened when students returned for full-time, in-person learning during the 2021-22 school year.

FOHI students can use state-of-the-art tools and resources in the Bio Animakerspace, which include engineering machines, laser cutters and 3D printers, to design, prototype and iterate anything they imagine – from artificial limbs to animatronic animals.

Coverage and/or inclusion of this event in your calendar of events is welcome and greatly appreciated.
