Multnomah County Library is in the midst of a very exciting project at the Rockwood Library. They are building an addition to the library that will house an innovative STEAM community center focused on serving grades 6-12 in the Rockwood neighborhood. It should be finished in January 2016 but they are offering many very cool programs right now in an interim space at the library.

Imagine a space where teens can have fun diving into STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) by making and recording music, engraving photos of friends on wood with a laser cutter, scanning and 3D printing replicas of their faces or building robot pets together. The  Rockwood Library makerspace will offer instruction, programs, mentors and innovative technology tools like a laser cutter, 3D printers and more. All programs — both structured classes and drop-in sessions — are offered to participants free of charge.

Please see the flyers below for more information.
