After the laundry folding robot Maker Club got into the mutant elevator (it was really big!)
... and went down to the basement to tour the Invention Labs. The first thing we did when we got in the room is stand around a table while someone told us about what was there.
After a short talk about what happens in the lab we got to look around for ourselves.
here is a list of the machines used in the lab
- Vinyl Cutting
- Laser Cutting
- 3D Printing - Basicly an glue gun in a thing that moves it around. But much much cooler to learn more click here
- Soldering - It's when you melt solder onto a circit piece that is placed on the thing you want to solder it to. T learn more and to get a better discription of soldering click here.
- PCB Prototyping
I have written pretty much all you need to know about our experience at Citrus Labs, but I feel like you should hear what some Maker Club members have to say about it.
"One of the things I love about invention labs and makerspaces, is that age is almost irrelevant. This is a space that folks of all ages could learn and work together."
