Building Idaho Makers – A Statewide Approach for Libraries

Presenter

Have you thought about implementing maker programs in your library? Idaho Commission for Libraries is supporting the implementation of makerspaces in eleven public libraries across the state in year two of the project. The project includes training on tools & technology, leveraging partnerships, involving community, and evaluating outcomes. The results include formal & stealth programming incorporating engineering, robotics, 3D printing & other STEAM topics to draw community members into these innovative programs and spaces! Come discover what Idaho is doing, what we are learning, and what's next.

Meet Modio, a new app that lets you design and print your own toys at home

Presenter

Modio, it's the new app that lets you design & customize incredible creatures and turn them into toys using a desktop 3D printer. Easy to use drag and drop functionality lets you build creatures, characters and constructs free-form or from pre-designed templates. Customization features including surface textures let you personalize your creation and then, with the press of a button, your parts are magically sorted by color and prepped to print. So the app is fun but the outcome is also outstanding. With Modio, you get to play! These creations are printed bit by bit and designed to snap together and provide some pretty amazing pose-ability.
