The San Bernardino Public Library will begin to offer makerspace activities in the new “CREATION STATION” located in the Jack L. Hill Lifelong Learning Center. A makerspace is a place for everyone to discover their inner creative powers. It is a place to Design, Create, Tinker and learn while having fun.
The San Bernardino Public Library was recently awarded a small grant to become one of 10 pilot programs to develop makerspaces in the library. It has been an interesting endeavor to become familiar with all the necessary tools to begin providing a makerspace. However, after meeting with a number of focus groups, we believe we are ready to offer a prototype project in our new “CREATION STATION.”
“CREATION STATION” will be offering a variety of events from Virtual Reality, Lego Building, sewing, crafting to 3D printing. These activities will be happening once a month. They will be held in the Jack L. Hill Lifelong Learning Center on Thursdays from 3:00pm to 5:30 pm. Our first activity will be a DECONSTRUCZONE. This activity is designed to check your curiosity and tinker with a real life computer. Ever wonder how they work? Now’s your chance to find out! Participants will work in teams as they deconstruct a computer and then put it back together. Come and join the fun for our inaugural event on Thursday, July 26, 2018 from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm.
