Idea to Invention: How to Be a Maker

img_20160706_171617Thursday, April 27, 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.

Bob Cottrell holds an MA from the Winterthur Program in Early American Culture in Delaware. The founding director of the Remick Country Doctor Museum in Tamworth, he is now the Curator of the Henney History Room at the Conway Public Library, a Board member at the Conway Historical Society, and President ex-officio of the Tamworth Historical Society.
