The Science Program to Inspire Creativity and Excellence (SPICE) held it’s second annual Science Open House event at the University of Oregon last Wednesday. Â Eugene Maker Space member Mark set EMS up with a table at the event so we could represent our group in the community.
Mark brought in his 3d printer and Rick brought in the lockpick Mystery box and vortex cannon. Â Mark’s friend John was also there with his laptop and some custom made 3D models he created in Blender. Â Dean was also at the event taking photographs, including those below.
We had a lot of people checking out our display. Â Kids and adults alike were all very interested in learning how to pick locks so I think people were able to leave our display with at least the knowledge of how pin and tumbler locks work. Â Many people also got to see a 3d printer for the first time and left with a basic understanding of how a 3d printer operates.
All in allÂ theÂ event was a lot of fun! Â Hopefully we can have an even largerÂ presenceÂ next year maybe with some more interactive activities for the younger crowd.
