FabNewport just finished running maker camps at the Middletown, Newport and Portsmouth libraries! We had a great group of 8 to 12 year olds from each community designing and making tee shirt and stickers, 3D prints, games and animation in scratch, and custom game controllers with Makey Makey’s. The camp was lots of fun. A huge thank you to the great support we had from librarians at each site, our volunteers and our interns.
Each library on Aquidneck Island now has a 3D printer, vinyl cutter, and some Makey Makey’s and Picoboards! We’ll be working with each library (Newport, Middletown and Portsmouth) to run programs for kids and adults to get everyone dreaming, designing and making.
We already have open studio scheduled in Newport for the next four Wednesdays: July 30th and August 6th, 13th and 20th. Each session from 2:30 to 4:30. If you have no idea about any or all of 3D printing, vinyl cutting, Makey Makey’s and Picoboards, no problem! No experience necessary and no pressure to be an expert. We’ll be on hand to answer questions and get you started. Keep checking your local library for Middletown and Portsmouth.
If you missed the camp, don’t worry!
FabNewport will be rolling out some camps for the end of August. Keep checking back for details!
