Welcome to RSC Makerspace at the Rockville Memorial Library in Town Center! This is a new public makerspace as a service to local residents and represents county support of science and technology initiatives.
The mission of Rockville Science Center, Inc. (RSC) (http://www.rockvillesciencecenter.org/) is to inspire a passion for lifelong exploration of science for our diverse community. Through our programs and quest to bring a permanent interactive Science Center to Rockville and Montgomery County, we work to cultivate a sense of inquiry, discovery, wonder and understanding of the scientific foundations of everyday life.
In 2016 Montgomery County solicited Rockville Science Center (RSC) to coordinate staffing and programs for this exciting new space. Our all-volunteer makerspace group serves our local area by providing patrons access to tools and makerspace resources. We inspire collaboration and have a lot of fun creating together!
Come to the makerspace and bring your kids to make projects such as electronic circuits, Arduino fun projects, soldering, paper craft, 3D print, 2D/3D carve your design using a ShopBot. 10 years old and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
New topics to be announced each meeting!
About the RSC MoCo Makers Group:
Started in June 2016, MoCo Makers promotes self-development and hands-on creation of ideas, prototypes, and physical creations. We hold regular meeting on topics ranging from introductory electronics, to machine learning, to commercializing prototypes, and more. While open to all skill levels, we have a solid core of technology experts that are pushing the boundaries of tech entrepreneurship.
All our projects are collaborations among our group members. We bring skilled engineers, serial entrepreneurs, developers, and designers into every product we produce. We are proud to help hobbyists scale up big ideas. We never assume significant prior knowledge with our topics, and all skill levels regularly attend our events.
Arduino fun projects: You are welcome to choose from 18 arduino projects to do at the makerspace or come to discuss your ideas with others for short or long-term projects. Arduinos, breadboards, connectors, sensors kits and many fun ideas are shared at the makerspace. 10 years old and younger must be accompanied by an adult.
