Makerspace @ The Tech

Free with Museum admission. Limited capacity; first-come, first-served.

Summer is a great time for making, prototyping, and learning. Join The Tech's Maker Corps Members as they lead our Makerspace sessions throughout the summer. They'll be tinkering in the Tech Studio, developing, and sharing some of their favorite Maker activities and technologies, like turning bananas into pianos using a MakeyMakey.   

Maker Corps members are experts in Making. The Maker Education Initiative partners with 100+ Maker Corps Members for their 5-week development camp this spring as they prepare to send them to Makerspaces all over the country for an unforgettable summer of making.

Stay tuned for information about our next summer of making, coming in 2015. 
Check out our video from last summer's Makerspace program for a sneak peek!
