Makers and innovators of all ages are invited to stretch their imaginations and ingenuity at the second annual SoCal MakerSpace Festival. Come celebrate creativity, resourcefulness, and invention on Saturday, March 23 at the College of the Canyons.
The family-friendly festival will feature hands-on STEAM activities, free workshops and exhibitions of the latest cutting-edge technology, including 3-D printing, lasers and coding.
“We are very excited to bring the MakerSpace Festival back to the Santa Clarita Valley and the surrounding Southern California community,” said Andy McCutcheon, Dean of the college’s School of Humanities, which oversees MakerSpace. “We hope this event sparks the imagination and creativity of attendees of all ages.”
Several keynote speakers will also be presenting and food trucks will be parked onsite.
The MakerSpace Festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Valencia campus at the main entrance. Parking will be free in all lots.
Admission is free and open to the public.
Created by Maker Media, the first MakerSpace Festival was held in the Bay Area in 2006. Since 2016, College of the Canyons has operated two MakerSpace locations at its Valencia and Canyon Country campuses.
Both of the COC MakerSpace facilities have been designed as collaborative learning areas which give users free access to tools, materials, technological resources, skills training and a variety of entrepreneurial opportunities.
