I hope you’ll join me for our discussion at the next Computers in Libraries conference where I’ll be speaking with my friend and co-worker, Christopher K. Baker, on the positive and negative experiences we’ve had hosting our 3D design and printing events:
A successful and viable Maker program is more involved than simply buying a 3D printer. This session explores the issues that exist behind the scenes, such as staff training, partnership formation, deciding between a “camp” and a “space”, and the many other issues that must be tackled when your library considers moving into the area of STEM outreach through Maker-style initiatives. It also shares how the program engages the community and has an impact with many of its constituents!
