Raising Makers

 

Why: Because we have some really interesting things to show you!  Topics include 3D printing, making cool projects from recycled materials, making prototyping tools from home or even just good old fashioned inventing, experimenting and tinkering.

In our first ever general meeting, anyone ages 7 and up is welcome to come to our first Raising Makers event. We’ll be showing off some of the great new technologies out there that enable us to make our ideas come to life in our own homes. Not only the tools and hardware that we build, but the software and open-source programs that help us design our inventions, and places that we can go to learn and become inspired to be creative.

Seej is a desktop game that you make on a 3D printer

 

Other groups like Raising Makers are springing up all over the world, and is because of our  culture of sharing our ideas and resources that we are able to bring such a number of great ideas together in what we do, so we’ll be taking a big look at ideas and projects that are already popular worldwide and talking about how we can help improve and make them better!

When: 10am-12pm, Saturday, July 14th 2012

At: Reuseum Ed. Classroom, 108 W. 33rd Garden City, ID

If you would like to attend this Free event, please email Dave at info@reuseum.com or just show up on Saturday!
