In Fall 2019 we'll again be offering student-taught tutorials on popular software used in the Scot Ackerman MakerSpace. Classes meet in SE124, the new MakerSpace Project Room. Enter from the alley next to Flower Hall. Invitations are sent to all registered MakerSpace users early each week. We have seating for 10 learners. Bring your laptop, with the software already loaded, and our Maker Ninjas will help you learn new skills. Thanks to the Makers and Robotics Society (MARS) for developing the handouts.
