Summer RE Volunteers Needed


Do you build, create, invent, or make? Do you sew, knit, do woodwork, electronics, fix radios, screenprint, or …? This summer, we want a guest each Sunday at 11:00 to demonstrate a different making technique, and to help supervise the Maker Studio as the kids work on their own making.

Don’t want to demonstrate a skill, but still want to help out? MakerSpace supervisors are also needed each Sunday!
