The Lone Star College-North Harris library will host a unique Ladies’ Night, Thursday, March 10 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in its Makerspace area, located on the third floor. This event is free and open for any female student, faculty, staff and community members to attend.
“We are excited to open up our Makerspace and share these amazing tools and equipment,” said LSC-North Harris adjunct reference librarian, Rumela Bose. “Our library is always on the cutting-edge of new technology, and we encourage both students and the community to take advantage of our offerings.”
The LSC-North Harris Makerspace is “DIY” space where people gather to create, invent and learn by using various tools, software, crafts and technologies.
The ladies’ night event will include learning how to use a 3-D printer to create 3-D models; working with a CNC mini mill for wood carving and engraving; venturing into virtual reality with the Oculus Rift headset, printing using different mediums and more; learn how to print using freezer paper; learning how to print from a large format printer and more!
“Our main goal is to introduce the Makerspace technology to women. Our Makerspace provides hands-on, creative ways to design and build while engaging in science. The things you can do in a Makerspace are absolutely amazing,” Bose added.
