Ideas Festival 2016: NJ Makers Day

Create Space at Hilton Branch – Saturday, March 19 10 am - 1 pm.  NJ Maker’s Day  will offer opportunities for participants to explore digital and hands-on learning experiences.  Projects include:

  • Cardboard Construction – Have fun in the construction zone with MakeDo tools and cardboard

  • Marble Roller Coaster – Using pipe insulation and masking tape you’ll create the track–maybe with a loop or two–for the marbles!

  • Building Blocks – First build blocks out of business cards and then build a fractal (figure with repeating patterns) out of the blocks

  • Paper Weight Challenge – Build a structure with only a single piece of paper, scissors and tape that will hold up six books!

  • 3D CAD mini workshop – Customize a model using Rhino 3D to be printed on our 3D printer

  • Sound Off at the Create Space – Check out our new recording studio. Record your impressions of NJ Makers Day!

  • Play-dough Engineering – Build structures with play-dough, straws and strawbees
