Busy, Busy, September at OpenShop

We hosted our first OpenShop just over 1 year ago, opening our North location to young Tinkerers to realize their building dreams. What a difference that year has made! This has been a busy, busy month at OpenShop, with loads of fun, interesting projects and a great batch of Tinkerers. This month saw robots, lots of Arduinos, soldering, and the usual spade of powertools and hot glue guns. Here are the photos!

Noah and Evan get fired up over Arduinos and blinking some LEDs!

Some bandsaw time for some quick and easy gravestones.

Noah practices his soldering as he works on his LED adorned walking staff.

Combine a temporary switch, coin cell battery, a 3v bright white LED, some terminals from an old pager, and a long, straight stick. Cut a battery slot, solder it up, and let there be light!

Calder works on holes for his hovercraft. Hey Calder, pay attention to that knife!

Wright’s super cool ‘hovercraft’ invention.

Noah’s cardboard battle helmet. Should go well with the LED staff.

Today we start up October’s sessions! Grab your Tinkerer a 1 month pass and come play with us!
