MakerSpace Corner – October 2015

MakerSpace Corner – October 2015
TLTC Staff

If you have not yet participated in a MakerSpace workshop we have lots to share!  October was a busy month in the MakerSpace.  The TLT Center hosted three workshops that students, faculty, and employees participated in.

The first of the three was a introductory 3D Printing workshop where participants learned how to use Tinkercad to build a pencil holder and customized nameplate.

Next up was a Halloween themed Wearable Electronics workshop where participants were able to use LEDs and simple sewing skills to make a t-shirt or mask light up for Halloween.   Photographs of the finished wearable electronics projects are posted to the MakerSpace blog.

The month of making was capped off with a Halloween themed 3D Printing workshop where participants were able to customize a Jack-o-Lantern Lithograph, Glow-in-the-Dark Ghost magnet, and Candy corn piece.  Photographs of the Glow-in-the-Dark Ghosts can be seen on the MakerSpace blog.

Coming up in November the TLT Center will be hosting a “Pizza & Pi” event to discuss a weekend workshop dedicated to creating a retro gaming console using a Raspberry Pi.  Associate Professor Mike Taylor and the TLT Center will be leading the workshop.  We invite you to check out an upcoming workshop to join in the fun.  What will you make next month?
