Workshop  02-25-2018 - Photo 1

On Sunday February 25th, UTeach Maker held a Design. Make. Take. workshop for participants to learn how to custom design their own projects on the laser-cutter. It was great to see 12 of our UTeach Makers in attendance. Jason Harron lead the workshop, where he taught participants how to create a custom vector drawing in Inkscape and cut or engrave it into a piece of birch playwood.

Creation included signs for hanging on the wall, custom bookmarks as gifts for friends, a puzzle-cube with chemistry symbols on the sides, and custom business card holders. At the end of the five-hour workshop, everybody had their own creation that they were able to take home. It was great to see everybody and we look forward to seeing you at Magellan International School for the SXSWedu MakerEd meet-up!
