Our ELITE Consultants (Emerging Leaders in Technology Education) are here to provide technology assistance and guidance. They can help with printing questions, software and hardware issues, 3D printing questions, and circulating technology questions. We currently have 8 ELITE Consultants: Andrew, Baren, Brenden, James, Quentin, Rabecca, Rizmi, and Tanishka.

In May Term, they will be presenting a workshop on how to design Cricut templates and how to use the Cricut machine. Currently, they are developing multiple tutorials for various library technologies, software, and equipment, including the Raspberry Pi, the Cricut, jewelry making, and how to use the special features on our printers.

Big congratulations to our three graduating ELITE Consultants: Andrew, Quentin, and Rizmi!
