Proposal: Making and makerspaces in the library

Gather, create, invent and learn with Cornell University Library’s new pop-up makerspace! Makerspaces are DIY areas equipped with supplies, where people with any level of experience can drop in, mess around, work together and make stuff. The Library’s new portable kit includes a 3D printer and scanner, Arduino and Littlebits microelectronics kits, button making, basic hardware tools, and more.  

Come to a hands-on demonstration; try making something; discuss the range of applications, programming, and other possibilities for making and makerspaces in the library; and participate in a makerspace design challenge!
