People in the Las Vegas Valley maker community are often too busy working on their projects to notice that there are others in the area who are engaged in similar efforts and can lend a hand, according to members of a local hackerspace called the SYN Shop.

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.

In Barnes and Noble Henderson about 140 people looked at various technology and crafting projects showcased by Synshop members over a 3 hour period learning about robotics and electronics. Microcontrollers were the topic in the Summerlin Barnes and Noble. Picture by Sonia Petkus.
