Be A Maker, For A Day

We've reached a point in technology our grandparents could only dream of: we can tell a little speaker to turn on the lights or the TV or the air conditioning. 

But for some of us, the fun is not in using the great gadgets of our age, but in understanding how they work... and making them do new things.  By now the term "maker space" may be in your head. 

These have sprouted up in many communities, and ScienceWorks Hands-On Museum in Ashland offers a daylong Maker Fest (September 15th) to let people release their inner makers.  ScienceWorks Executive Director Dan Ruby and Event Coordinator Ana Byers visit.
