Archimedes Makerspace Grand Opening

Archimedes Makerspace Grand Opening

By 2020, complex problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity are projected to be the top in-demand job skills, according to the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report. While there is a growing need for these skills, they are not traditionally taught in the classroom. AC Library saw an opportunity to create a space for middle and high school students to learn these skills while collaborating on community-defined projects with businesses, non-profits, and local government. 

You're Invited!

We invite you to the grand opening of our new innovation space, Archimedes, on Friday, August 16, 2019 from 3-5 pm at the Fremont Main Library. Archimedes is located on the library's second floor.  During the grand opening, students will present their work and solutions to some community-defined projects. There will also be a tour and demonstration of equipment in Archimedes, including an Oculus Rift, 3D printer, and vinyl cutter.  

Follow us on Instagram to see some of the amazing projects that local teens are making in this new space!
