    With Purcellville open, we will have open shop-work days the first Saturday of each month from 9AM-2PM. Members can stop by and work on their projects, too, while we work on the place, but we would love to have your help as well. We have a growing collection of better-organized tools, but it's good to bring your own as well. New to Makersmiths? Feel free to stop by for a tour!

    Tech Wednesday is now Tech Thursday!

    It is intended to be a social, group learning event. Members of this group are beginners to experts who are also invited to organize group projects or group builds. Come hang out or bring your computer and electronics projects to work on or share with other group members. This is a great time to seek help and guidance on electronics, embedded electronics (Arduino, raspberry pi, etc) and programming. There is no charge for Makersmiths members or members of the general public for these gatherings. Meet in the general purpose room at Leesburg and we will also use the electronics room. The group is limited to 10 members each time we meet.

    The host for Electronics Wednesdays is Allon Stern. Questions? Contact him at allon@radioactive.org.

    Come and join us for a night all about crafting!

    It's a BYOC (Bring Your Own Craft) and socialize sort of deal. No cost unless its a special event. We will have at least one of our many craft experts hanging around to help you brainstorm, chat, lend an extra hand, and more.

    This is a great time to get out of the house and away from the family, haha!

    This event will be held at our Leesburg location with a possibility of duplicating this is Purcellville in the coming months.

    Hosted by Erin and Jessee

    We’re trying something new here!

    Similar to our bi-weekly open craft nights, we’re going to start doing a monthly board game night!

    Bring a game, or just come and play a game. There are several tables in our main room in Leesburg, so multiple games can be played at once! Snacks are welcome as well.

    Plus, we’re thinking of having kids playing in another room just in case we want to play something like Cards Against Humanity. So it will technically be a family friendly event! 

    We have set aside 2.5 hours, but we can stay as late as a full member is willing to stay!

    RSVP so we know how many to expect.

    The KidWind Challenge is the ultimate wind energy learning experience for students. During the school year 2018-2019, Makersmiths sponsored a Middle School Team for the purpose of exploring wind energy through the hands-on, investigative, and exciting KidWind Challenge!

    For the 2019-2020 school year, the Middle School KidWind Team will meet in the main room of Makersmiths Leesburg from 4:15 PM-6PM on the designated Friday afternoons beginning Nov. 8 until April 3. The KidWind Competition Day will be April 14 at Northern Virginia 4H Center in Front Royal.

    See the KidWind 2018-19 site for details about this unique "maker" STEM initiative for our youth.

    Parents of new team members please sign the Makersmiths waiver giving us permission to work with your youth in our makerspace: https://waiver.fr/p-NVPOj.

    Participants in the Makersmiths’ KidWind Challenge teams learn the purpose of the KidWind Challenge, an ultimate wind energy learning experience for middle and high school students around the country.  The overall goal of the KidWind Challenge is to have fun while learning to build a device that converts moving wind into electricity.

    Our Makersmiths KidWind participants will be involved in teams based on their appropriate grade level. The High School Team will be for youth presently enrolled in grades 9-12. Parents of new team members please sign the Makersmiths waiver giving us permission to work with your youth in our makerspace: https://waiver.fr/p-NVPOj. 

    While participating in a KidWind Challenge, participants learn about physics, engineering, environmental science and policy as they:

    • Conduct background researchplan and build an innovative and functional turbine that will produce power.
    • As a team, students test their team’s turbine and calculate its power output to improve its design.

    We anticipate that our KidWind Challenge teams will be ready to compete in the Northern Virginia Challenge on April 14, 2020 (Tuesday) at the 4H Center in Front Royal. This event will be coordinated by Remy Pangle, JMU.  Since this falls on a school day, all participants will need to arrange absence from their schools on April 14 so they can compete as complete teams.

    Questions about the high school Makersmiths KidWind Challenge team? Contact the coach, Mike O'Brien at mobrien@elvantech.com
