ProtoWorks holds regular workshops and making competitions, where you will be able to make some cool things with the guidance of our Guardians.
Please note: these are for people who have already been trained to be users in ProtoWorks ONLY. You must be trained both as a user (general orientation) and in the specific machine being used. See our training schedule and sign up now to ensure you are a member prior to these events.
- Laser cutter: you will be given a sheet of material (and a practice sheet) and tasked with building the tallest free-standing structure
- Bench tools: you are given a block of wood (and optional wheels/axles), and tasked with making a children's toy
- 3D printing: you may design and build something using up to a specified amount of material to accomplish a specific goal
Choose your track, make sure you're trained, and stay tuned for announcement of when you can pick up materials and the final competition date!
Winners will receive a laser cut trophy and drone.
