Makerspace Urbana hosting Pi Day Open House March 14th

Pi Day: the time of year when people come together in the spirit of peace, goodwill, and mathematics! Come celebrate all of our volunteers and supporters on Tuesday, March 14th at our special Pi Day Open House from 6:28-9:42 p.m.


6:28-9:42 p.m.: Tours of Makerspace, 3D printed pi swag, & pie eating!

7-8 p.m.: Lightning Talks:  Come see Makerspace members give lightning talk about some of the amazing projects they have worked on at Makerspace Urbana. Each speaker will have to inspire us in only 3 minutes and 14 seconds.

8-9 p.m.: Soldering Demonstrations: If you’ve heard of soldering before, think soldering may be a difficult skill to acquire, or are unsure what the purpose of soldering is—or if you don’t even know how to pronounce the word (pst: it’s SAH-der)—this workshop is for you! That’s because soldering is easy! In this intro level demo, you will learn the principles of soldering by creating a circuit on a light up LED robot badge. (Age 8+ for soldering)

9-9:30 p.m.: Dance Party in Room 15
