In 2015 SCLS used federal LSTA Technology grants (and other resources) to compile several mobile maker kits that libraries may borrow. These kits include a scanning kit, sewing machines, and a stop motion animation & video editing kit in addition to the Lego Mindstorm labs that were available in 2014. More information. Some of you have already incorporated some of these kits into your programming and we are hearing good things about them.
If you are curious about the kits, there is an open house this coming Thursday (4/14) from 9 am to 3 pm at the McMillan Public Library in Wisconsin Rapids (called Mobile Maker Mania!). Registration is not required and you may drop in at any time. More information.
