Art-tech at its best. Learn a variety of technologies including laser cutting, 3D printing, electronics, coding, and CNC carving. Combine those with art, design and creativity and the sky is the limit. An opportunity to explore, make and create with expert guidance.
For 3rd grade and up
The Junior Maker program is meant to introduce participants to a number of different technologies available at The Makery and in other makerspace environments. Participants will learn design with Inkscape (an open source program that works like Adobe Illustrator), RDWorks, laser cutting functionality and design, 3D printing basics, CNC basics and a touch of electronics. Each technology will introduce a new smaller project. The final project will involve two to three technologies. We will also use woodworking as needed, hand tools and artistic finishing techniques (painting, staining, collage, glass, sculpture, etc.). This program is meant to introduce the rich environment of a maker space in preparation for an on-going Maker Club experience in which participants can work on projects of their choice with expert guidance.
