Makerscouts (Open House)

The first Friday each month Makerspace Charlotte hosts a free open house for young and old. If you've never been before, or if you've been many times on other nights, the first Friday MakerScouts event is special. We dedicated this night to showing off many projects with hands on activities. There are no age limits on activities ( 6 year olds are just as good at crashing out quad copters as 60 year olds ). Waivers are required for all in attendance and kids must be supervised (by you). Tell all your friends and come on out. RSVP not required but appreciated :)
We will have lots of free activities for you to try your hand at. Some common themes of which we will do many of on any given first Friday (influenced by RSVP notes):

• Rockets
