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.
