March/April 2019

Maker Season is Upon Us

Winter is finally over and things are starting to warm up quickly. Like germinating seeds in the soil, many exciting things are about to happen this spring. Let's all Spring Forward to Maker Season!

We have started our monthly Open House every 3rd Saturday of the month from 10 am to 12 noon. The first two events were held on February 16 and March 16. Families enjoyed free snacks and kids created free projects. What a nice way to spend a Saturday morning with your family! The next Open House is on April 20 and will continue throughout 2019. Come check out our STEAM3D Space at Open House. Family with kids are welcome to register here!

On February 26, we led a 3D Printing Workshop for students at Christ the King Catholic Elementary School in Richmond Hill as part of their "Tech Tuesday" series. Participants were introduced to the basics of 3D printing and learnt about the 3DP workflow. We also demonstrated the operation of the school's MakerBot 3D printer (donated from us) to jumpstart their 3D printing journey.

On March 5, we conducted Drone Workshops for students at Port Credit Secondary School in Mississauga as part of their "Breakthrough 2019" Conference. Participants learnt about drone rules and had the chance to battle with mini-drones. It was very well received by students, volunteers and teachers.

On March 9, we attended March Break Kickoff Maker Fest organized by Richmond Hill Public Library at Richmond Green Library. Apart from showing off some awesome 3D prints, we had the opportunity to fly our DJI Mavic Air drone in the library to record part of the festivities. Could someone please verify if our indoor drone flight and aerial videography in a public library is a Canadian first?

Our "Hack Your Creativity" March Break Camp was successfully held from March 11-15 with double the attendance from last year. Campers spent a day each learning about Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. There was even a week-long mini-game competition culminating in a dragon trophy for the winner. Everyone had a blast!

 PA Day Camps, and Summer Camps are now open for registration. Don't miss out! Register today!

Due to popular demand, we are now planning 2 workshop series for mature adults (55+) in late spring/early summer. The topics will be Digital Fabrication and Basic Astrophotography. Stay tuned for updates!
