Demo classes and mini workshops will be on throughout the day. Team “Watt’s Up?” who has competed in the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) category of FIRST Robotics will be running robotic demonstrations and matches. Other workshops include Makey Makey, Coding, Inventing with Junk, Create Your Own Stories, Origami, and Design with littleBits. Come meet the people running each activity in the Metuchen Makery and find out about all the amazing things you can make with us!??Consider this event as a great way to network, meet other makers, and just have an awesome time with like-minded people. Come see first-hand what the hype is all about!??We started with nothing but an idea and with the help of our community and the generosity of the Lemelson Foundation have made a dream become reality!??Imagine a place where creativity gathers. A place that cultivates imagination as the cornerstone of active learning and supports the library’s evolving role as a community center where people of all ages and backgrounds come together to create tangible projects using shared resources. The Metuchen Makery will be that place. The Metuchen community will soon have access to traditional tools and new technology in a hands-on, creative environment.
Start with us, grow with us, make with us!??If you’re in the loop of what’s going on in Metuchen, then you’ll be at the Metuchen Public Library on Saturday March 21st!??
See you soon!
