Digital Fabrication for Young Makers!

What are 3D printing and laser cutting? With advancement in technology, digital fabrication machines that used to be found in industrial environments can now be found on your desktop! They are easy to use, even kids can master them! We will introduce two digital fabrication machines most used by makers in their innovative projects – the 3D printer and the laser cutter. Kids and parents will be able to see these machines at work!

Build Your Own Circuit Board!

MadLab is a unique, hands-on electronics workshop for families. Smartwatches, robots, and TV remotes all have the same thing in common – circuit boards! In this workshop you will solder electronic components onto specially-designed circuit boards. The excitement of MadLab is learning how to use a soldering iron, and actually being able to make and take home a working electronic circuit. Soldering irons aren’t scary.  We’ll show you how to use them safely and there is a lot you can do with these skills!

Slime Time

Slime is a strange substance. Left to its own devices, it oozes like a liquid; give it a push or a pull, and it’s stiff like a solid. This workshop looks at materials in how they change and transform and it also involves making slippery slime.
