MakerLab 1 Year Anniversary! - This event has already occurred
Saturday, June 22, 2019 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
On Saturday, June 22nd, Northumberland Makers will welcome the public and special guests to the 1st Anniversary Party of the MakerLab at Venture13. Northumberland Makers is a community of creators, innovators and makers with a goal of improving equity of access to tools, technology and education in Northumberland County, Ontario.
Established in 2015, the Northumberland Makers have organized events for makers of all ages throughout Northumberland County at libraries, farms, Main Street events and backyards. Less than two years ago, Northumberland Makers was asked to partner with Venture 13 and this partnership proved transformative to our group. The MakerLab has been occupied since day 1 with a steady flow of youth and adult programs. In their first year at the MakerLab Northumberland Makers has organized a series of Summer Youth Camps, Youth Clubs, a Girls Tech Club, Small Business and Educator workshops, Sign-Making for Retailers and more.
The Educators at Northumberland Makers follow the STEAM approach to learning:
S: SCIENCES (Physical and Social )
The Northumberland Makers is in a unique partnership with Venture13 and the Club’s activities often spread into the adjoining classrooms, kitchen and Lecture Hall. The entrepreneurs and small businesses that call Venture13 home have access to the MakerLab and it has become a spot for local entrepreneurs and the curious to tinker, learn and teach. The match-up of curiosity and expertise is a regular and empowering experience.
Visit the MakerLab at Venture13 Saturday June 22nd from 1-4 for a tour of the MakerLab and MicroFactory. Meet some interesting makers, check out some amazing tech and watch us produce MakerLab TV live!
