Next up in April we hosted our first lunch and learn series that was dedicated to 3D printing. During this first class we introduced the basics of 3D printing and how consumers could bring that technology into their homes. In 2016 we look forward to expanding on this first class and not only showcasing the technology, but making it accessible within our space!
During our first full week of summer camp in June we partnered up with the Averitt Center and the GSU City Campus to offer an electronics camp where students aged 12+ could design their very own portable solar powered phone charger. During this camp our students learned 3D design, soldering, and got to use a 3D printer!
In October we also participated in both Geekend and the 2nd Annual Mattress Dash. During these back to back events we had participants help us to build version 2.0 of the recycled lightbrite and then mount it onto the front of our cart for the big race! While we didn’t win, we still had a great time and carried our way over the finish line!
Though it goes without saying, we’re going to say it, and that is how awesome our members are! What was the best part of 2015? Getting to know all of our awesome and amazing new members! Although 2016 is upon us, it will always be the founding members that started this journey with us that we remember and appreciate the most. Here’s to a great year of making in 2016!
