Jack Links representatives Kelly Sonnek and Patricia Lopez presented a $30,000 donation to Educare for Mankato Area Public Schools on December 19. The generous donation will be used to fund Makerspaces in Mankato Area Public Schools' elementaries. Makerspaces combine manufacturing equipment, community and education to enable design, prototype and creation of manufactured works. They are spaces where students gather to create, invent and learn. Three dimensional printers, software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies and tools are generally found in Makerspaces.
