Last night, Austin and Bob built a filament holder for our 3D printing station. It holds four spools of filament at the ready, and it is expandable to six spools. Rick’s MakerBot is directly under the spools. Mark’s PrintrBot is offscreen to the right. Many thanks to Rick and Mark for making these printers available…Details

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.
