Maker season has started!

As a run-up to the February 28 Mini-Maker Faire, the Synshop organized several events: Showcases of electronics and crafts projects at Barnes and Noble Henderson and Summerlin for their November 6-8 Maker Faire, and a youth workshop at the Synshop on November 14.

At the STEAM Explorers November 14 workshop,  a group of 8 to 14-year-olds had a fantastic afternoon creating a Caesar Cipher encrypter/decrypter with woodblocks, and looking at a Caesar Cipher encryption computer program. Some girls decided to stay longer and learn more about programming by creating some programs in JavaScript.
