Community: Burlington's new space for makers

Tinkerers, rejoice! When Burlington's Generator opens in the basement of Memorial Auditorium this month, DIY mavens, or "makers," of all ages will have access to shared workspace and tools such as laser cutters and 3-D printers. In addition to memberships and studio space, the Generator will offer classes for kids and families in 3-D printing, soldering and computer-aided design. "It's important that we're family friendly," says executive director Christy Mitchell. "Kids nowadays pick up on stuff so quickly, you could even have kids teaching their parents new skills here."

Generator: Grand Opening Celebration, Saturday, March 29, 4-8 p.m., in the Memorial Auditorium Annex in Burlington. Families can tour the new space and participate in hands-on activities such as using a 3-D printer to create jewelry. Find more information at generatorvermont.com.
