In September Open Shop at the Makerspace (19 E. Franklin) is on Saturdays 8:30 am-12 pm.

  1. hi, I have 2 questions; are kids welcome on Tuesdays and are code dojo sessions still being held on the first Saturday of the month?

    1. Definitely on both! Kids are welcome anytime we have open shop (Tuesday nights for now), in May when the Farmer’s Market opens downtown we’ll have the makerspace open Saturday Mornings also.

    1. Hope for late July/early August. Our plan is letting folks make an acrylic keychain or we have some interest in building Dice Towers. The original design software we were going to use needs a laptop at least, which we don’t have enough of to do a class. But working on a way to use Chromebooks, a recent gift we received from Techpoint Foundation for Youth.
