Subject: Maker Space Series: Super Happy Maker Fun Hour


I'm forwarding this along from the Colorado State Library, a free, online monthly series on maker spaces with a practical focus:

Have you attended makerspace webinars in the past and learned nothing other than what someone else purchased? Are you already running maker programming in your library and don't know what to do next? Have you heard about robotics, 3D printing, or sewing machines in libraries and wondered who were the wild people doing those things? Are you sick of hearing about "why" we should be doing maker and want to know about "how"?

If you're asking these questions, then we have the event for you! It's new, it's exciting, it's a beta informal learning opportunity, it's the...

Super Happy Maker Fun Hour!

The Colorado State Library is going to be showcasing a new maker every month from January until June, and you can ask questions, learn about their projects, and get ideas for inspiring and implementing maker activities in your library. We'll have something for everyone, so no need to be an expert on any given topic. Just come interested and eager to ask questions!

January's featured maker will be Jesse Perez from the Denver Public Library who will be talking about Arduino and other microcontrollers on Wednesday, January 20, 12 PM - 1 PM (MT).

We will be chatting on Google Hangouts and the live stream will be recorded to YouTube and embedded on a Colorado State Library page (to be determined) with resources for you to learn more and make your own projects. Please note that if you want to chat with the presenter, you must view the stream on Hangouts or Google+.  Comments on YouTube are currently experiencing a glitch the prevents anyone from adding comments while the video is live.

Other upcoming topics include 3D printing in February, communally designed robots, and socially motivated sewing!

The first session on January 20th can be accessed here! https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/112776772178656531699/events/caf6oo2v8mp59pv1m6fiqrosu9k
