Your Community: Passport to creativity

Shawnee Mission Post Sponsor - June 1, 2019 10:00 am

This summer, the Makers at Johnson County Library will again offer the popular MakerSpace Passport Program. This is a great way to learn about Maker ideas, tools and skills at various branches in the Library system. Each week a new project is presented by our Library Makers and Youth Services team. Participants can complete a series of different weekly projects using a variety of materials and methods.

At this open, walk-in program, you come in, learn from the Makers, and take home something awesome. This is a kids-only space – no grown-ups allowed! Pick up a Summer MakerSpace Passport your first time, and get it stamped after your workshops. Kids who complete one of each week’s activities will be entered to win the Grand Prize, a family membership to Museum at Prairiefire and a pink 3D printed Pikachu.
