Idea to Invention: How to Become a Maker

img_20160706_171617Thursday, June 15, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Join Jason Clark to explore 3D Printing, microcontroller programming (Arduino, Raspberry Pi), basic mechanical design, robotics and more.

Depending on interest, potential projects include creating an automatic plant watering unit, a mini robot arm, a line following robot, a ghost detector, or a metal detector. Learn to think like an inventor. For ages 10 and up.

Jason is a lifelong Milford resident with 20 years of experience in prototype design and fabrication.  His latest project is a device that can measure blood sugar without a blood sample!  His projects vary wildly…  from automated bird feeders to temperature measuring robots.  His favorite part of any day is helping someone to the “ah-ha” moment, the point when an idea clicks.

Teen Tech Squad

Mondays
3:00 PM until 5:00 PM


Have you recently acquired a new device? Need help learning how to navigate?  Drop in at the Wadleigh Library on Mondays from 3-5 p.m. to get help from students from the Milford High School Technology program.  Laptops, iPads, tablets, e-readers – all devices welcome!

Knit 1, Crochet 2

1st and 3rd Mondays of the Month
6:30 PM until 8:30 PM


Are you looking for other yarn addicts? Do your Monday nights seem dull? Look no further! Join us for a drop-in stitch-fest on the 1st Monday of each month.  Bring your project in & be inspired; if you’re a beginner, your local craft store can help you select a project & requisite supplies. There will be no formal instruction but ‘knitwits’ are a helpful bunch and love indoctrinating the uninitiated into the cult of knitting.
