Learning at Castlemakers

Laser Engraving/ Cutting Class
Laser Engraving/ Cutting Class (pre-Covid times).

Castlemakers offers classes to the general public, sometimes with a modest charge, so you can learn new things and technologies and also to help satisfy that inner desire to make something. Registering for these classes really helps us out so we can make sure there’s enough equipment and components for the class.

We also offer other learning opportunities which are listed on our events webpage and included in our newsletter.

Upcoming Classes

We’re planning an Advanced micro:bit Class on Saturday May 1rst from 1-3 pm. We’ll be using a breakout board to explore additional micro:bit inputs and its ability to control other devices. Cost of the class will be $15 and we’ll have everything you need. Email us if interested or want to find out more information (classes@castlemakers-dot-org). Space is limited and a face mask will be required (we can supply you with one). Please reserve a spot by emailing us at classes@castlemakers.org or for more questions.

Learning to Solder is tentatively set for May 22nd at 1 pm. Learn soldering by building a Jitterbug Robot which includes a motor, LED, and light sensor. The $15 cost includes the circuit board, parts, and battery. Email us if interested or for more information at classes@castlemakers-dot-org.

Have something you’re interested learning about? Have a skill you’d like to teach others? Let us know!
