Glimcher Tech & Design Hub director Jesse Robinson is hosting a series of Maker Monday sessions after school for SSA faculty and staff on all four campuses to learn more about the creative projects that are possible using the equipment in the Senior School facility's Fab Lab.
At the inaugural Maker Monday session on Sept. 12, participants learned to use 3D printers to create lithophanes, which are pieces of thin translucent plastic with artwork etched into them that can only be seen when backlit with a light source. At the second Maker Monday on Sept. 19, teachers learned to use the Epilog laser cutter to create jigsaw puzzles using a personal photos.
In addition to being a fun and social after-school activity, Maker Mondays are designed to show faculty and staff what types of projects are possible in the Glimcher Tech & Design Hub, and to inspire ideas on how to integrate creative tech and design projects into the classroom across disciplines.
