George Meadows, professor of education, introduces area students to high-tech tools for scientific learning at the England Run MakerLab as a way to provide opportunities for local community members and University of Mary Washington students. The partnership with Meadows and Central Rappahannock Regional Library was featured on the cover of the library’s @ Your Library magazine.

“I think the MakerLab provides an extremely valuable community resource,” said Meadows in the interview. “It exposes people to some of the newest advances in technology – things you might be surprised to find at a library.”

Meadows highlights the necessity for UMW students and children to have the opportunity to use and learn with the technologies in the MakerLab, including a 3-D printer, engineering kits and digital microscopes.

 

Trail Brings Students and Community Together

More than 40 University of Mary Washington students worked with Tree Fredericksburg, the Parks Department and the Department of Public Works to improve the landscaping downtown Thursday, August 21. The freshmen mulched the Heritage Trail as part of one of many Living Learning Community Service projects they plan to complete throughout the year. Community members and students alike are welcome to walk this trail while admiring the outstanding work the students and staff completed.
