Richmond Green Library held their maker event on Saturday afternoon, March 11, and might not have been prepared for the ylab mayhem. Other exhibitors might have been content with a display table. We kind of… expanded. Out of control.
People coming in through the entrance rotunda for a quiet read were surprised by hovercraft scooting by.
What’s normally a children’s reading area was taken over by sumo bots and some nifty book-making. The paper and cover kind, not the covering bets kind.
We weren’t just showing stuff. Light sabre repairs, modifications and software upgrades were happening right there. We left with more working light sabres than we came in with.
And the children’s program room? Our Jacob’s ladder and some interesting audio demos made light and sound waves visible and understandable, with bonus ear-piercing sounds.
Big thanks to the ylab volunteers who brought all their creations, and to all the Richmond Green Library staff who were so helpful in so many ways putting on a great maker event. And not throwing us out.
