Family Hack Day a Success!

Eugene Maker Space held our very first Family Hack Day on June 1, 2013.  We had a decent sized group of kids and families show up to get some work done on their own projects.  And boy did work get done.  We also had several EMS members show up to lend a hand and teach some new skills.  Thanks to everybody who came out to make this event a success.  It went so well that we intend to put on another one in the not-too-distant future.  Keep your eyes peeled for updates on that.  In the meantime, check out what everyone was working on!

Eugene Public Library Event

The Eugene Public Library hosts events for young kids on Sunday afternoons.  A few months back, Eugene Maker Space was invited to host one of these events at EPL.  We accepted the offer and on February 3, 2013, six members from EMS went to the library to run the event.

The age group for these events is typically ages 3-7, plus parents of course.  We thought that building and launching paper rockets would be a great event for this age group.  It’s also relatively inexpensive for us to host since we already have two available rocket launchers and the rockets themselves are made from just computer paper and masking tape.
