Charlottesville Women in Tech’s Maker Party

July 12, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Makers are pushing the boundaries of entrepreneurship and creativity and anybody can do it! Join us at our Maker Party and get hands-on with some cool projects we’ve explored during our maker club sessions at Tinkersmiths and with Tech-Girls. Make your own LED bracelet, turn an every-day object into a musical instrument, or learn how to control lights through the internet with Photon Kits!

As usual, food and drinks will be served.

This event is open only to attendees who identify as women.

Event Agenda
5:30-6:00 Arrive, eat, socialize
6:00-7:00 Presentation
7:00-7:30 Stay and network
