How inclusive are your maker programs? Join us in this session to learn how you can use your library’s 3d printers and makerspace to offer more inclusive programs to your patrons from different backgrounds, including those with a disability. Learn how you can use 3d printers to build a community, empower individuals, and change lives. It’s not all about 3d printed trinkets or prosthetics; it’s about education, empathy, and empowerment. We’ll have programming ideas, stories, and resources that you can use to start offering more inclusive maker programs at your library.
