Idea to Invention: How to Be a Maker

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.
