MakeTime For Kids: Xmas Edition – Dec. 16, 1pm-4pm


We are really excited to announce our 2nd annual MakeTime for Kids: Christmas Edition. This one is shaping up to be something special and last years was already a huge hit. This year Makerspace/LLC (Ladies Learning Code) will be joined by NS3 (Nanaimo Science and Sustainability Society).

Activities will include:
– Interactive 3D printing demonstrations
– Woodworking – (Christmas trees with 3D printed ornaments)
– Creating LED Ornaments for the tree
– Scratch programming (Video games and more)
– Dash and dot programming

** And we hear that NS3 will be putting up a wind tunnel for kids to play and experiment with**

We are still looking for a number of volunteers to help out, if you would enjoy being involved please contact me at

Please help us get this information to the parents and children who would be most interested by sharing it with your groups and posting the linked poster locally. (PDF, 908KB)
