Workshop 88 member Anna Gillespie created a series of animatronic owls for an event at the public library where she works. The owls were controlled with arduinos using servo motors and a wav shield for the sound of the owl hoot. Some of the owls turned their heads and some of them flapped their wings in addition to hooting. This was a great project to watch from start to finish; thanks, Anna, for sharing with us!
Another great open house night at Workshop 88! Ray got some assistance with his robot project from some young makers.

Last Thursday evening we had the pleasure of having a group from the Society Of Women Engineers tour our makerspace and ask questions on the many aspects of being a maker and what we were working on. They were a mix of female Engineers from different fields of engineering; chemical engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers,and civil engineers. Really great night having them here with us. Are you, or do you have a group of people interested in makerspaces or hackerspaces? Come visit us on any Thursday evenings from 7-10 pm @ workshop88.
