With the momentum of the maker movement, more science museums are adding makerspaces to exhibit floors and special programs. Digital fabrication makerspaces and 3D printing really capture the imagination of the public and inspire creativity, so reinvent your makerspace for this new wave of technology! Experience hands-on projects with a laser cutter, 3D printer, and vinyl cutter and learn from the experience of the Carnegie Science Center (CSC) about implementing a fully digital makerspace into the institution. From learning about the tools and technologies to implementing new makerspace programming, Fab Lab CSC staff will share best practices and best projects to get you started with digital making. Preregistration required. Limited to 16 participants. Fee: $150 per person (includes breakfast and lunch).
