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.

Hiking the Camino de Santiago

Wednesday June 14, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


Theresa Fersch did not consider herself an adventurer before her trip; yet somehow this smaller-than-average but larger-than-life woman, at the age of 34, found herself in the middle of rural Spain, having the adventure of a lifetime. Sunrise in Spain shares Theresa’s epistolary account of the most exciting moments of her journey across the 500-mile Camino de Santiago pilgrimage, from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France, over the Pyrenees Mountains, and across Spain to the famous cathedral in Santiago de Compostela.

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.
