Teens in Craig to build a 3D printer from a kit

The Craig Public Library received a $1,000 grant from the Young Adult Library Services Association and The Best Buy Children’s Foundation for Teen Tech Week. Teens from Craig will build an Airwolf 5.5 3D Printer that will be available for library patrons. The pre-soldered kit will ship from Airwolf in California next week, and the teens will begin the build on March 8.

During the week, teens will meet on the Alaska OWL video conferencing network with techs and 3D printing enthusiasts to swap tips. On March 14, at 5 p.m., the library will host the third Annual Pi-Einstein Day Celebration. The public is invited for pizza and the unveiling of the printer.

See craigpubliclibrary.org and follow the Teen Tech WeekTM links to the build site and other programs to celebrate the week. For more information about the grant and build project, please contact Library Director Amy K. Marshall at (907) 826-3281 or director@craigpubliclibrary.org. For more information about the printer kit itself, please contact Eva Wolf at Airwolf 3D Printers at (949) 478-2933 or Eva@airwolf3d.com.

Guy About Town: Help for a town made of people

Hey, all! I hope you’ve been having a healthy, enjoyable January despite the meteorological mood swings.

See, I don’t have to watch the tumultuous perpetual gray on the one hand, and on the other I don’t have to feel bad about being inside when it’s sunny. I just turn on my Costa Rica webcam and put my shades and Pet Sounds album on and party with those spreadsheets all day long.
