This monthly newsletter will provide you with insights on what is happening at Altoona’s epicenter for innovation and entrepreneurship, Catalyst Space.
We have officially launched our very own online market place for makers! Catalyst Shop will features products made Catalyst Space members as well as other talented makers around the world!
Check out products such as our Catalyst Space original Catalytic Flames, and String Art Kits. The most impressive products are those made by our members such as the pottery made by Sniklefritz Studios.
Catalyst Shop is open to new vendors! You do not need to be a Catalyst Space member to create a listing although members do enjoy some additional benefits. If you are interested in becoming a vendor click here for more information, and feel free to share with anyone you know that may also be interested in being a vendor!
We recently concluded our first summer internship program! The Catalyst Space internship program provides high school students with a one of a kind opportunity for Blair County and the surrounding areas.
Our interns participated in a mock interview, learned key management and customer interaction skills all while being exposed to the vast technologies here at Catalyst Space.
We have opened up our summer 2021 internship application, additional information can be found here.
Additionally, we are looking for donors to help keep this opportunity going for many summers to come. If you know anyone that would be willing to be a generous gift to ensure this opportunity continues please share this link with them, thank you!
Back To School
Typically back to school would be a time of celebration for most parents. However, this year is turning out to be far from typical. As schools prepare to welcome students back in person we are helping ease this transition by creating child-size face shields.
Select from small, medium and large face shield at https://www.catalystspace.org/product/child-face-shield/
We also have a number of other PPE related products including desk dividers. To view our full selection click here.
