Discover the power and precision of high-intensity beams of awesomeness! Learn how to use a laser cutter in our exclusive maker crew event on April 21  and 22 in our Chevron-Houston Texas Maker Annex workspace.

In Level 1 you will learn that laser cutting is directing the output of a high powered laser to cut different types of materials and you will be able to design and build a spinning spruce tree.

In Level 2 you will use CorelDRAW software to design a laser-engraved coaster.

Please check the Workshop times for each Level below.  

Upon completion of this Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 workshops, interested participants will be invited to join our brand new Kid's Maker Crew - with exclusive workshop and tinkering opportunities.
