Our MakerBot Replicator 2 3D printer made a guest appearance at the Florida Library Conference this week. Technology and Education Center staff presented FABulous Centers: Empowering Libraries to Get Innovative and Creative with Hi-Tech Technology and we used the 3D printer and our Snap Circuits and K’NEX kits to show hands-on examples of innovation and creativity in our STEM classes and workshops. A packed room of over 60 conference participants enjoyed the event. Most knew about 3D printing, but had never seen a 3D printer in action. We have embedded our Prezi Conference Presentation below.
Stay tuned here each week for more exciting upcoming technology events at the Orlando Public Library
