Our first workshop in the new, lovely, expanded library in Coopersville was a hit. Here are the resources from the day, including slides.
We started off with a notecard activity to get the participants thinking with their hands. We then dived into the history and aspects of the maker movement, along with our experience.
After asking participants to think about their own communities, we made a flashlight and hacked it into some pretty unbelievable things. (With a junk box that’s been whittled down, even!)
Finally, we had a lightning round of game design followed by tools time where participants got to check out our tools.
