Open Maker Lab and Guide Assistance

12:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Main Library
Maker Lab
The ACPL Maker Labs are used by individuals or groups. Maker-spaces have become arenas for informal, project- driven, self-directed learning, provide work spaces to tinker, to create, test prototypes, and collaborate with others of similar interests. A Maker-space allows individuals or groups of people to pool resources and create a community of people with varied interests in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). These interests may include but are definitely not limited to: circuitry, robotics, soldering, woodworking, fabricating, programming, networking, hacking, bending, etc. Come join us on a brief one hour tour of our Maker lab and see what wonderful things you have the opportunity to experience. Event Type(s): Maker Class Age Group(s): All Ages
