The UC San Diego Library will be hosting a Maker Open House on Wednesday, January 15. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place in the Seuss Room in Geisel Library, from 12 noon to 1:30 p.m.
Maker events and spaces, which promote learning through play and exploration, provide Library users with a variety of different tools and crafts to produce their own works of art and information. The Library will be hosting a pop-up makerspace workshop, and Library staff will be on hand to help participants test and create their own works using the Library’s 3D printer and a Rasberry Pi computer. Participants will also have the opportunity to make origami, as well as their own robot button (solder) or silk screen t-shirt (Please bring your own shirt).
