The Pioneer Library System’s mobile maker space – the Maker Mobile – is hitting the road for this year’s Summer Reading Program for a series of activities geared to teens ages 12 to 17.
The Shawnee Public Library hosts the Maker Mobile crew for the program "Rock On!" at 2 p.m. Wednesday, May 30, at the library.
Participants will create their own laser-engraved rock by using Inkscape software to create designs that then will be etched on decorative rocks using the Maker Mobile’s Laser Cutter.
Class size is limited to 10 participants so registration is required in advance to attend.
The PLS Maker Mobile features a variety of technology gadgets, including some of the library’s STEAM Power Maker Kits, a CNC Mill and a 3-D Printer, along with the laser cutter teens will be using in this activity.
Sponsors for this year’s Summer Reading Program are the Anne and Henry Zarrow Foundation, Friends of the Library groups, Hitachi Computer Products of America Inc., Institute of Museum and Library Services, Oklahoma College Savings Plan, the Pioneer Library System, Pioneer Library System Foundation, Sonic – America’s Drive-In, Corp., the Oklahoma Department of Libraries and the Oklahoman Newspapers in Education.
