Tam Makers at Marinovators

Tam Makers at Marinovators

Tam Makers hosted an exhibit at Marinovators 2017 — a free event that showcases young makers in Marin County. We presented some of the cool projects our members created in our makerspace: elegant boxes, wooden bowls, robot arms, interactive art and gadgets.

This year’s featured exhibit was a Time Machine created by our Maker Art class at the Lycée Français in Sausalito. Our 4th and 5th graders were on hand all day to demonstrate this innovative after-school project, which combines art, technology and storytelling — using Arduino, motors, lights and sounds.

We also invited visitors to make their own Tam Makers badges with LEDs, laser cut shapes, and color markers. They created some ingenious badges, and wore them proudly at the show. Everyone seemed to enjoy their experience with Tam Makers: children, parents, makers and woodworkers all had a wonderful time making art together and learning from each other.

It was a great way to celebrate art and science and encourage children to build a better world.

Marinovators took place on Saturday, April 22, from 10am to 3pm, at the College of Marin in Kentfield. Our Tam Makers booth was in Room #245 in the new Academic Center.
