Maker Showcase in Surrey on Sept. 26

Members of Surrey’s Maker Cube group will take part in Surrey Libraries’ inaugural Maker Showcase, on Saturday, Sept. 26 at City Centre Library, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. "The official submission period is now over, and we’re planning on having nine presenters" at the showcase, Cristina Teixeira, Information Services Librarian at Guildford Library, told the Now.

"We have people showcasing 3D printers, Lego NXT mindstorms (so there will be a robot battle!), Meccano models, interactive arts and crafts, and video pieces, to name a few. Some of them are individuals and some are groups, including Surrey Maker Cube and the Fraser Valley Makerspace."

Also participating is Arts Umbrella, SFU’s School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT) and a library-led A/V Club that meets once a month at Guildford Library, Teixeira added. Event details are posted at Surreylibraries.ca/makers.
