Studio M at Monroe Township Public Library

Stop by Studio M at the Monroe Public Library to see demonstrations of the 3D printer, heat press, button maker, music creation, photo editing and arduino programming.

Studio M is a new maker lab dedicated to the discovery and implementation of popular and emergent technologies. Studio M provides library patrons with access to tools and hands-on learning opportunities. Activities and workshops for all ages are being scheduled and will be announced when confirmed.  Studio M will also be open for informal exploration. The four main areas of education and programming will be:

  • Digital Photography/Video Creation and Modification: Bring your own photos to scan and edit or use the green screen and cameras in M Studio to create new videos, pictures and art.
  • Music Creation (no instrument required): Use an iMac, midi keyboard, and software to create your own music or collaborate with musicians online.
  • Basic Arduino Programming: Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform. The Arduino Kits allow beginners to create and program electronic devices.
  • 3D Design and Printing: Create and print 3D plastic prototypes, models or household items. Items are created from PLA filament, a renewable bioplastic.

What are Makerspaces?

Makerspaces (also known as Hackerspaces, Creative Spaces, Fab Labs, Makelabs and in California - Makerhoods), according to Wikipedia,  are open community labs where members with common interests (e.g., engineering, computer programming, inventing, graphic design, etc.) gather to share resources, knowledge, career networking and build new devices.  Generally, makerspaces are designed to meet the following needs:
