Eugene Maker Space will be holding it’s first ever Punkin Chunkin’ contest! If you aren’t familiar with the tradition of punkin chunkin’ then you are in for a treat.

EMS will have a booth. We still have room for more members to show their projects, so let us know if you want to exhibit.
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!
The first EMS Make-O-Rama was held last Saturday, Feb 23 from 11AM to 4PM. We had a good turn out. We had a good portion of our membership turn up to help out either by showing off projects or talking with visitors. We had a ton of snacks, drinks, pizza, and good conversations. A few…
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.
