The STEM guitar project has been providing professional development training for faculty and student workshops for over 16 years. Our project is looking toward the future where we can impact even more students and revitalize the careers of instructors who join us for our professional development institutes and workshops. This project team has been funded through the National Science Foundation Advanced Technical Education grant process and the direct project grant ended in 2022. Over the 15 years, we have trained over 900 faculty from 48 states and several countries and have impacted 10’s of thousands of students along the way through the building of guitars.
We have a unique training experience where we package both educational content and the ability to construct an electric or acoustic guitar or CNC developed electric guitar in just 5 days. Our Design, Build, Learn, Play motto that we have used for over 10 years to successfully impact teachers, students and veterans across the United States.
The STEM Guitar Project is at a crossroads. Our team is choosing to expand our impact and provide high quality customized faculty professional development, corporate team building experiences, Veterans rehabilitation guitar building experience, and “hands on” building student group/organization activities.
We will continue to support the online instructional support materials and maintain the Sinclair Community College Guitar Lab storefront to support the education community building guitars.
If you are interested in a customized educational or corporate event / project please reach out to us. We will try to hold scheduled faculty training in the summertime will continue as we have done for the last 16 years. We look forward to serving you in our new expanded capacity going forward.
