Mini-Maker Table – For All Ages

Fridays & Saturdays

10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us every Friday and Saturday for a mini-maker project from our MakerLab! Every month we will feature a quick project or new piece of equipment to mess around with. The results may have you leaving with something to physically take home OR just the satisfaction that you were able to create a circuit, power on an Arduino or thread a sewing machine. The projects are easy, meant for all ages and 100% drop-in. It is just up to you to find out which floor we are featuring the project on and drop on by.

Registration for this table is not required – just come ready to tinker, play and create!
