The Wilson Library's 2nd Annual Mini Maker Fair was hosted at Sneaky Park and proved to be a great success. Many students, staff, and faculty participated and presented their projects, with subjects varying from arts to sciences. Check out some of the highlights below!
Andrew Murillo - Homemade Arcade
Recent Computer Science graduate, Andrew Murillo presents a retro style arcade machine that he built himself!
B.J. Haddad - Quantum Levitation
Physics lab manager, B.J. Haddad, shows us how to use simple physics to make objects levitate! Magic or science?! :o
Interns will be trained with using the 3D printer, laser cutter, as well as basic circuit design using the RasperryPi and the Arduino microcontrollers. This can usually take between 3 - 6 hours of training. Afterwards, interns will be assigned projects such as 3D printing or lasercuting marketing giveaways for the library. More in-depth projects will then be assigned based on the interns' interest and skill set such as designing an application that would solve a problem for the library and/or community.
Internships starts on a day that we assign to the student based upon their availability and our Makerspace staff availability. Our Interns will be expected to input at least 3 hours of training per week for two weeks. After the initial training, the students are then expected to come in 2 - 3 hours per week to work on the projects for an additional 2 - 4 weeks depending upon the project scope.
The Wilson's Library Makerspace is available from Monday - Friday 8 PM - 6PM.
