Our partners at Eugene Maker Space have been busy lately! Last Saturday, they had their first-ever Make-O-Rama open house, which featured soldering lessons, 3D printer demos, and much more. Most of the membership was on hand to show off past and current projects.
The makers also spent an afternoon at the downtown Eugene Public Library earlier this month, where they launched paper rockets and allowed kids to play with other toys. We love partnering with EMS not only because of their awesome projects, but because of their dedication to getting young people involved in making as evidenced by these events.
If you’d like to find out more about what EMS does, try going to one of their Open Hack Nights on most Tuesdays and Fridays. Check their web page for more details. Look for them to be a major part of our Faire in June! (And YOU can be a part of it too, by signing up as a maker, buying tickets, or sponsoring the event.)
