Prior to the event, participants should create an account at https://www.tinkercad.com/. Printers will be on hand printing examples of what is possible. After the Makerspace, you will be able to upload your design to a 3D Printing service and have your design printed and shipped to you through https://www.shapeways.com/. We have specially arranged a 20% educational discount with Shapeways for this event.

What's a Makerspace? A new community space to promote S.T.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) education for Piedmont students. A Makerspace is project-driven: for Class, for S.T.E.A.M. Expo, for the Piedmont School Maker Faire, or for fun! A Makerspace is staffed with expert mentors - either teachers, parents, or high school students.

What is Piedmont Makers? The event is sponsored by Piedmont Makers - a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to Promote & Inspire K-12 S.T.EA.M. education in Piedmont & beyond.
