Answer the Call for Makers to showcase your talents this April and inspire others to make.

Lake County Robotics teams and 4H Spin clubs are learning new skills, brainstorming designs and making plans for the final competitions in April. Even more exciting, two of our instructors, Paloma and Jayson, are former CLC students.

Check out their robots at Make Faire Lake County on April 13th. What would you like to showcase at the faire? Apply now to be a Maker

Our makers created rides that you would be willing to wait in a long line for. See all of them on display at the Maker Faire in April.

Projects from How to Make Almost Anything

As the new semester starts, I’m still thinking about the great projects from the How to Make Almost Anything course (EGR140).
Now it’s your turn to start making! The 4th Annual Maker Faire hosted at CLC is just around the corner. Apply now to be a maker.

As November winds down, I am thankful to be part of an engineering department that encourages curiosity and exploration for all ages. I’m also excited as we finalize the plans for the Make-a-Thon Jan 27th and Maker Faire on April 13th. Applications for Makers opens Dec 1st

One of my favorite activities at a Maker Faire is the community build. More than 500 balloons were a part of this Maker Faire Lake County mural. 

Just one of the latest projects our engineering interns are working on. I’m also excited to see several CLC alumni have submitted Maker applications or willing be joining us as volunteers.

Jake’s Robotics will showcase what is possible with a 3d printer and some Arduinos. Everything from life-size robots to handheld props will be on display at Maker Faire Lake County on April 15th. Here’s your chance to communicate with R2D2.

The 3rd annual Make a Thon was held on March 11th at the ATC. Community members of all ages (middle school thru early retirement) had the opportunity to combine their prototyping and programming skills. They were tasked with creating scenes or props based on their favorite movies. The results were incredible. Attend Maker Faire Lake County on April 15th to see all of the creations and vote for your favorites!

As Maker Faire Lake County approaches, it’s time to start making! Join us for a free afternoon of coding, prototyping and creativity on March 11th.
