Gadgeteers Club Take Apart Tech & 2017-2018 Maker Season Kick Off

October 12 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

5.00$

Calling all makers and innovators!


We are ready to start up the 2017-2018 Gadgeteers Club program! Are you ready to innovate and make creative new things you’ve never made before? This is the year to do it in Gadgeteers Club!

We are changing the Gadgeteers program up a bit this year and invite you to come learn about the changes, enjoy pizza and salad, and TAKE APART STUFF for your projects this year!

There will be all kinds of things you can take apart from printers, to computers, to blenders and more!

Come get inspired and see examples of projects you might consider making this year to showcase at the Young Innovators Duvall Mini Maker Faire to be held in April 2018.

Gadgeteers Program Changes this year

Each Gadgeteer will embark on two separate, self-innovated, 3 month projects involving various tools and materials. The goal of these projects is for each student to push their personal boundaries of combining art and technology to innovate in new ways for them personally.

Gadgeteers will have the option for their projects to include: 3D printing, fine art materials, sculpting, metal cutting, electrical engineering, modeling, and much more!

Ages: Adults and Ages 5 and up recommended or younger can partner with an adult to innovate as a team. Multi-age, and varying team sizes working on an individual project are fine as well. Team members must pay individual member prices.

Gadgeteers will have 1-2 nights per month to work on their projects at the art center with assistance from Duvall Makers Society members.

Project 1: Oct – Dec
Project 2: Jan – March
Each project will be on display at the Duvall Young Innovators Mini Maker Faire in early April.

At this first kick off meeting we will decide what day of the week works best for the most club members. Currently Thursday evenings are best for the volunteers running the program.
