Fantastic Tour & Slideshow of Technocopia Makerspace in Worcester, Massachusetts
MassLive staffer Aviva Luttrell recently visited Worcester’s Technocopia makerspace and produced a fantastic write-up accompanied by a 45-image slideshow showing the diversity of Technocopia’s resources on offer at the space, from silkscreening and 3D-printing to glass blowing and welding. Also from MassLive is a video tour of the facility (embedded below) with Technocopia co-director Lauren Monroe – the space is absolutely bustling and buzzing with activity across 8,000 square feet!
Take a look inside Technocopia — a makerspace on the sixth floor of the Printer’s Building in Worcester.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
