MakerMondays Come to Longwood


The Digital Education Collaborative is excited to announce that we are hosting a series of MakerMondays this semester! The DEC is currently developing its makerspace, called the DIGILab, in partnership with the Greenwood Library. While we continue to put the finishing touches on the DIGILab, we want to give you a preview of its possibility. The DEC will host bi-weekly MakerMondays through the rest of the semester. See the schedule at the bottom of this post.

Each MakerMonday gives you an opportunity to be creative, imaginative, and explore something new in responding to the challenge of the day. MakerMondays will take place in the future home of the DIGILab, room 147B on the first floor of Greenwood Library. Walk in and to the back of the atrium; take a left at the stairs and we’ll be on your left. Look for our logo on the door!

Join us for our first MakerMonday next week, February 13th, at 4pm. You’ll be challenged to explore and master the use of a Sphero, a small robot that can be programmed to move, turn, change color, and even talk in various ways! Do you think you can rise to the challenge?

Join us for one or all MakerMondays this semester!
