We are putting the finishing touches on our new location and are planning our open house on Saturday, November 2nd at 11am. See you there!
Downtown Mobile hosts an Artwalk event every second Friday of each month. The Makerspace is located right on the edge of the Artwalk district. While you are enjoying the Artwalk event, stop by the Makerspace for a tour of the facility. We will be showing the tools that are available, showing some projects that members are working on, and giving demonstrations such as wood carving and 3D Printing. If you have never participated in Mobile Artwalk, this is a good time visit the downtown Mobile area.
Pi Day concludes Teen Tech Week this weekend, March 14th, at Ben May Main Library downtown Mobile from 10AM-1PM. Mobile Public Library has partnered with Mobile Makerspace to demonstrate member projects including drones, 3D printers, Ardruinos and of course Raspberry Pi projects. Mobile Public Library is giving out AWESOME door prizes.
Kick Off event had a great turn out. People are always mesmerized the first time seeing 3D printers.
Great turnout for the Beginner Arduino Workshop on Saturday. Patrick led the class on the basics of microcontrollers and the Arduino. Rick assisted with examples and explanations. We met several new people. Witnessing the spark of imagination kick-in is a lot of fun in these workshops. A basic understanding of sensors and programming logic is all it takes to launch in to Arduino projects. It’s a common gateway for several of our members.
