The MakerPlace will be hosting six skill building workshops this fall. These workshops are geared toward youth in the 4th to 8th grades. The workshops are open to both youth and the adult of their choice – mom, dad, big sister/brother, or neighbor. So, come learn more about the maker movement, The MakerPlace, and bring your ideas to light!
Sound Circuits - September 7th and 21st
Ever open up an electronic device and wonder what’s going on with that complicated green circuit board? Explore the mechanics behind circuits and electronics by building your own music synthesizer!
Halloween Hacks - October 5th and 19th
Hack into your favorite Halloween costume to add sound, light, and even motion! Build, program, and create your own spooky contraptions to make your porch the envy of your block.
MakerMade Gifts - November 2nd and 16th
They say the best gifts are the one’s made with love. We say gifts made with love AND a 40-watt computer-controlled laser are better than that! Use design software and laser cutters to create some high powered homemade gifts for the season.
Each youth that attends the workshop will be exposed to many different media: textiles, wood working, electrical circuitry, joining, cutting, laser cutting, soldering, programming, 3-D plotting, and much more! They’ll learn how these different media can be combined to create one-of-a-kind projects.
Adults are there to work alongside the youth, not to be full participants in the workshop. They will not be making their own projects, but assisting the youth and being exposed to the maker movement and the many different media.
The cost to attend the workshop is $18.00 per youth, with one adult attending with them for free. Extra adults are $5.00 each. No youth may be dropped off at this workshop. However, one adult may accompany up to 3 youth.
