Maker Space Meetings

The next Maker Space meeting will be for the Monday group - Monday, November 17 at 8 am in Room 509.

We will have a donation drive on Saturday, December 6 from 9 am - noon. Clean out your basement, closet and attics.   If you have any items to donate, you can drive up to the curb and we will unload them for you.  Here are examples of what we are looking for:

Hand Tools and Small Power Tools
Glue Guns
Fasteners including glue, tapes, screws, nails, brads
Wire (insulated and uninsulated)
Sewing machine
Soldering Irons
Fabrics and trims
Craft supplies (popsicle sticks, yarn, pom-poms, markers, paint, pipe cleaners, colored paper, foam shapes, dowels)
Peg board and organizing bins
Old toys - especially ones with moving parts or electronics

We will take almost anything, but you can e-mail me at and I will let you know if we can use your items.

Parents and Students:  If you need to go to tutoring in the morning to do work, that takes priority over coming to  a Maker Space meeting.  
Make good choices - academics should be the most important.
