What is it? More like, What isn’t it?
The idea behind the MakerSpace is this, put a bunch of cool stuff in a room and see what people can create. We have both low tech items–Duck Tape, scissors, glue, construction paper– and high tech items–iPads, Flip cameras, MacBook Pro, Little Bits, Spheros, and more. So what can you do? Would you like to produce a song using Garage Band or a movie using iMovie? Would you like to using AutoCad to design something for the 3D printer? Would you like to learn how to build an app or game? Would you like to make your classroom presentation look and sound awesome? The MakerSpace is your place. We will be open every day in the library during school hours. We will also be open from 7:00am – 7:40am every Thursday and Friday beginning October 2 for extended projects.

The great thing though is you don’t have to wait to begin. So much of this can be done at home. Begin coding and designing on your computer or phone. Watch and design LittleBit projects online in the Bit Lab. Download the Orbotix apps for free to your phone or device to begin programming the Sphero robots (iOS or Android).
