Projects

laser cut projectHave you been to the Castlewood Makerspace yet? Our laser cutter can personalize and engrave materials like glass, plywood and acrylic! Have a water bottle, wine glass or other round object? We can engrave that, too! Book an appointment with a tech specialist who can show you the ropes.


Tech Tip

Have an older computer and are looking for an older version of a program (web browser, music player, etc.) that might still work with what you have?

Check out the website OldApps.com

They provide users with a wide assortment of current versions of familiar software, and their predecessors, for free. Their database is updated with older versions of software as they become readily available.


Projects

Build your own programmable robot powered by IBM Watson!
Just download the design files and 3D-print or laser-cut the robot parts at the Castlewood Makerspace. It’s a fun, open source way to learn how to program for the cognitive era.
