BLDG 61: Boulder Library Makerspace

Sondy from Southwest Research Lab made this super cool laser curtain project on our laser cutter that is being sent into zero-g and will someday (fingers crossed) end up on Mars! We totally geek out over space related projects 💥
There's still time to submit your work to Maker Made 2023! Full participation details are at!
Making is not just for adults. Zachary, Emerson, Kate, William, Asher and Delaine came in to make shirts for Zachary's 11th birthday party! I imagine with Friends, pizza and Sweet Cow it was a huge success. Happy Birthday Zachary!!!! Come make more cool stuff with us soon. #meetyourmakermonday
