Details

Join our first Tam Makers meetup! In this free event, we will show off our makerspace, talk about our first maker classes and discuss your ideas for growing our maker community together.

The shop will open at 6pm, with quick tours of our wood shop and computer lab, as well as demos of recent projects. At 7pm, we will present the Tam Makers initiative and host a group discussion afterwards. We’ll then network informally and get to know each other, before wrapping up at 9pm.

This should be a fun evening for anyone interested in joining our community. This first meeting is geared toward adults, but some of our high school and middle school students will show off their creations as well.

We have hosted a popular adult woodworking program at Tam High for many years. We now want to expand that program with new maker activities -- and are starting this summer pilot to develop it together. We would like this community project to be more than a series of classes offered by a few instructors, and we invite your active participation.

Here are some of the questions we'll discuss together:

• What do you think of Tam Makers?

• Would you like to take a class?

• Would you use the makerspace?

• Would you join community meetings?

• Are you interested in our youth programs?

• Would you like to help grow Tam Makers?

Learn more at TamMakers.org (http://tammakers.org/), where you can already sign up for our first classes and workshops.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
