Make Something Awesome

Maker Corps

Make something awesome at your library!

Our Maker Corps artists Kai and Caide have been finding all sorts of ways to get kids building, making, and creating this summer.

From paper puppets to Ozobots, these two have been bringing hands-on making to children and families in communities all over Madison. You can read all about their adventures and projects on the Maker Corps blog.

Maker Corps Artists

There's still several Maker Corps events to get involved in this summer! Will you be screen printing? Sewing terrifying (or adorable!) sock monsters? MakeyMakeying homemade computer controllers? Tinkering with circuits? Or diving into a Mystery Engineering box to invent something new? You never know what adventure awaits!

Drop-in for 15 minutes or stay an hour with your grown up and meet our Maker Corps teaching artists to create something awesome.

These drop-in programs are designed with school age children or teens in mind as small parts may not be safe for toddlers. No registration necessary. Visit the Maker Corps website for more information.
