Maker Week

First Ever Maker Week Introduces New Technology at Schlow Library

Boen Wang | August 24, 2015

Science, technology and art will collide starting today in State College, as the Schlow Library kicks off its first ever Maker Week.
Featuring a series of craft workshops, camps and speaker sessions throughout the week and culminating in an open-air event at the Sidney Friedman Park on Saturday, Maker Week aims to introduce “new and traditional technologies” to the public, Schlow Library communications manager Susanna Paul said.

Events include demonstrations of 3D printing, a coding class aimed for kids and an opportunity to scan and print one’s head. Maria Burchill, head of adult services at Schlow, said that while “there are camps that are for kids, none of the programs are exclusive. It is all ages.” Aside from the camps, all events are free.
