Meetings & Events

Castlemakers

All Castlemakers events are free and open to all unless otherwise noted! You can also sign up for our monthly events email at this link.

Open Shop time at the Makerspace (19 E. Franklin) in May & June is on Saturdays 9 am-noon and 7-9 pm on Tuesdays. Bring in a project to work on, try one of ours, or just visit! Our equipment list & library continues to grow.

We’ll be open for Main Street Greencastle‘s First Friday from 6-8:30 pm on Friday June 3rd with activities both inside & outside. With May’s rain cancellation we’re going to have the Foam Box Racing in June instead. Build and launch a race car that built out of foam and homemade wheels down Franklin Street to see how fast it will go! We’ll have blocks of foam & tools for folks that want to make one.

The Castlemakers CoderDojo, a free volunteer-led, community-based programming club for young people, meets the first Saturday of every month. You can visit anytime during the meeting, which is Saturday June 4th from 1-4 pm.

Saturday & Sunday June 25-26 is ARRL Field Day, where ham radio operators all over the US have a public display of the science, skills, & service of amateur radio. Locally PCAUXCOM will be operating at Putnam County Emergency Operations Center(EOC) and have license testing at 2 pm on Saturday. Some Castlemakers amateur radio operators will be giving an educational demonstration at 5 pm of WSPR and, if the International Space Station is transmitting, SSTV.

  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.
