Ylab at Richmond Green Library Maker Day 2019

Ylab invades a library. Again.

Richmond Hill’s Richmond Green Library held their third annual March Break Maker Week Kick-Off on Saturday March 9 2019 – and ylab was there.

It’s ylab… so of course we had light sabres!

Mandatory equipment: 3D printed DDO dome an light sabres.

A big hit with the kids was the hand-cranked generator, with good old analog meters and buttons to press. Beats an LED display any day.

Buttons! Real dials! A crank!

And no display would be complete without some robots running around.

ArduinoBot and RossBot. Which is which?

We had lots of other 3D printed and laser cut creations like the rope-making machine.

Count the cranks in this post. The generator crank, this rope-making crank, and some of the assorted ylab members.

Big thank you to Richmond Hill Public Libraries and all their staff for inviting us and putting up with us, and to ylab members Ross, Pek, Richard and Miro for taking a valuable Saturday – and all the planning and preparation time – to bring in all the stuff and make it all happen.
