See, learn about, and use some of the coolest new tech out there, like a 3D printer, a CNC milling/carving machine, Ozobots, Little Bits Electronics, & a bunch of other cool stuff. Participants will learn how to use the TinkerCAD & possibly Easel programs. Optional (but helpful): bring your laptop if you have one, so you can learn on your own device (no software needs to be installed to play with the programs introduced in the workshop).
This program is generously sponsored by a grant from the Ludlow Cultural Council.
