- Lots of creativity going on! Students learned about the computer programs involved in creating designs, and did some etching!
1/19/16 Meetup at Rochester Makerspace!
A Grizzly 6″ by 9″ belt sander has just been donated to the Makerspace! This will allow wood workers to create a lot more projects! Some helpful makers who stopped by during our open house got it put together and set up in no time flat! Special thanks to them.
Our own Ron Boucher has donated a Panavise to the Rochester Makerspace! It is a very well made vise designed for holding circuit boards and other delicate electronic items together while they are being assembled, repaired, etc.
On Saturday, December 5, grown-ups had a chance to get in on the holiday fun with a class on art egg ornament making!
A very elegant and festive expression of creativity for the holiday season!
Lots of artists and guests showed up for a great evening of music, treats and beautifully artistic creations of all kinds!
The stained glass meetup is going strong, as evidenced by all these people hard at work! Perhaps we’ll get to see some finished projects on display at this week’s Third Friday art show!
On December 4, the Makerspace hosted a field trip for uhome schooled students in grades 2-12! No one was bored!
The RBJ (Rochester Business Journal) recently published an article about maker spaces and how vital they are to the advancement of productive communities in today’s economy. The article explained how the Makerspace fosters the spirit of community and collaboration while providing a space and equipment for the development of a variety of projects.
The article pointed out that a mich higher quality of products results when a diverse group of people with diverse skill sets collaborate on a project than when one individual is expected to provided all the ingenuity and creativity independently!
