July 6 Open Night

There’s never quite enough time to explore as much as you might want in one evening. Open Night is a chance to go back and explore activities in more depth or try something out from a night you did not make it to. If this is your first time to Makers, that’s not a problem! We’ll have the Maker Cart, Snap Circuits, probably some LEGOS and K’NEX, and maybe even a Makey Makey or two out for people to experiment with! You also never know what other things might pop up at an Open Night!

As normal, we’ll be in Clippinger 036, Ohio University, from 6-8PM.

July 13 (note change of date)- 3D Printing Workshop

 

(Originally scheduled July 6, this event was moved to July 13.) Mr. Nick Conroy will lead a 3D printing workshop. We will have several printers available. Nick will discuss the basics of 3D printing and participants will learn how to create 3D models in Tinkercad. The printers will be available to print models, but the reality is that a single print may take a while, so some prints may need to be left for subsequent weeks. Tinkercad is a free online tool supported by Autodesk. In order to save your models, you need to set up an account at https://www.tinkercad.comĀ  There will be a limited number of temporary accounts set up, but if you can set up an account in advance (click sign up in the upper right corner of the screen), that would help.

Clippinger 036 – Ohio University, Athens Campus – 6-8PM

We meet in Clippinger 036 from 6-8PM on Thursday June 22.
