Have you seen our 3D printer, Ralph, in action at the library? Ever wonder how it works? Do you want to print something of your very own?

Join us at 3D Printing for Kids on Thursday, February 22nd as part of our 3D Printer Day! We will be running two sessions, one at 11:00am and another at 2:00pm.

In this forty-five minute program, kids 8-12 will learn the basics of 3D printing. We'll see how they work, what they can make, and what other kinds of 3D printers exist in the world. There will also be time to try out software like TinkerCad and MakerBot Cloud Print.

All attendees will be able to choose from a selection of pre-selected models to have printed for them for free. These will be printed after the program.

Registration is required as space is limited. Be sure to choose your preferred time slot when registering - 11:00am or 2:00pm.

There will also be an all-ages, drop-in 3D Printer Open House held from 1:00pm - 2:00pm during this all day 3D Printer-Palooza!
