We had a blast at Fall Fest this year!
Firstly, a HUGE thanks to GCCC for the use of their Mobile Lab. All our demos and crafts would have been much more difficult, if not impossible, without it. If you find yourself in need of a quick pop up space with great facilities, you should definitely talk to them about it.
Secondly, thanks to everyone who stopped by to check out our little corner of Fall Fest. Our goal is to create a community-oriented organization and it’s encouraging to get so much positive feedback from the community.
We had a great time showing off some of the tools that will be available to members and talking to the community about what the Maker Space is all about, as well as what they would be interested in seeing in the future. Among these tools were our 3D Printers, which were a huge hit with kids and adults alike, and a laser cutter/engraver, which spent the day making plaques for the kids. We also had Yuriy and Sarah out to demo their Vex robotics and talk to people about the various robotics programs in town, and get a birds-eye view from their drone.
For the kids, we also had crafts including popsicle stick catapults, Bristlebot races, Paper Rocket Launches, and engraved name plaques.
