What’s going on?

If you’ve been to Studio 300 lately you might have noticed a small change outside our A/B/C video rooms. You may ask: What is this? Site preparation for a new art installation? Well, the first part of that sentence is correct (not so much the second).

We’ve relocated our book collection to the third floor with all the other adult nonfiction technology books and moved our display case to a different area inside Studio 300. In the blank space, we’re addressing power and computing needs for a minor expansion.

As part of our initiative to fully integrate our maker resources into Studio 300, we’re preparing to construct new counters, cabinets, and storage to better support our desktop fabrication machines.

Keep watching this space to see our plans take shape. Once completed you’ll be able to access all of the maker technology anytime Studio 300 is open. Meanwhile, pardon our dust …

 

Date Night in Studio 300, part two

Moms and their sons explored Studio 300 once again during our second Digital Date Night. The evening was filled with fun as patrons played music, made videos, used our Carvey desktop fabricator, built and coded a robot, and so much more.
