The library celebrated Teen Tech Week 2018 the week of March 6-9th. We had an awesome week filled with pixel art, fixing broken tech in our repair café, filming videos using our green screen, and many more activities. We hosted speakers in the tech industry and a collegiate eSports team. Ozobot bridges were stretched through the library, a giant blanket was made using 3-foot-long 3D printed knitting needles, and the sound of vintage records danced in the air. Check out our photo highlights below.
Calling all EHS & CTE makers, creators, and innovators! Teen Tech Week will be taking over the library and makerspace on March 5-9. We have a full schedule, including Raspberry Pi, Ozobot Bridges, Pixel Art, Green Screen, Pinbox 3000, and many opportunities to build and create. Stop by and join the fun!
It may still be summer, but it’s never too early to think about fall fashion. Maker Nate C. made this miniature ensemble for the thespian in us all. Nate has said this look is a work “in-progress,” so here’s hoping we get to see the entire cast of decked-out art figurines soon.
Maker Carl F. created a Slayer Exciter using copper wire, a a 2n2222a transistor, a 22kOhm resistor, and “a lot of magnet wire.” Carl mentioned that he created the air-cored electrical transformer as a demonstration for Robotics Club to show students what is possible when cobbling materials together. Hopefully this magical-maker display of electrical ingenuity inspires curious makers to take the leap with electronics.
Two makers from our Makerspace used vastly different approaches when crafting their wearable creations. Max, using a design from Thingiverse, made a wearable replica of the Millennium Puzzle from Yu-Gi-Oh while Jordan used felt and sewing skills to make a wearable carry-all (who needs pockets?).
What is the first thing to do with a brand new drawing pad? Why, sketch, of course! Tommy used an artist mannequin for inspiration to begin his doodling journey.
Sometimes the only thing needed to make something is a laptop and a wi-fi connection. The Makerspace has several students who put their working knowledge of Java to the test as they work with Minecraft modding tools to create new geometric creations.
