Makerstate Takes on Summer Reading 2014

This summer, the New Mexico State Library will sponsor a series of “makerspace” programs to public libraries, in conjunction with “Fizz, Boom READ!” summer reading and the Makerstate Inititative. The New Mexico Makerstate Initiative is led by Parachute Factory, a commakerspace-srp2014munity makerspace in rural Las Vegas, NM, in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, the New Mexico State Library, New Mexico Highlands University, AmeriCorps, and several local libraries and museums across the state.

The goal of the New Mexico Makerstate Initiative is to excite NM communities about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). The Makerstate Initiative encourage participants to reclaim New Mexico’s rich heritage of making, and introduces exciting new technologies in a fun and accessible way.

The programs will vary in duration – from 3-day workshops to one-off 2-hour programs. Programs will feature 3d printing demonstrations, Scratch computer programming workshops, MaKey MaKey workshops, sewable electronic programs, and more! Contact libraries for more details about times of programs, which program they will be hosting, and registration requirements.
