This was our first Open MAKE event, in which we explored electrical circuits, through activities, exhibits, and works of art.
First, we hosted a group of Young Makers participants in the Tinkering Studio, and with the help of this month’s featured makers Ken Murphy, and Windell and Lenore, we made Blinkybugs and Bristlebots.
Then the featured makers were interviewed by Dale Dougherty, Editor of Make Magazine to a full auditorium, and took some interesting questions from the public.
Finally, we opened the Tinkering Studio, for the first time, to the public, offering both BlinkyBugs and BristleBots making activities, as well as thematically hand-picked exhibits to play with. Take a look at the slideshow to see images from the event.
