Join MakeICT, Society of Women Engineers Wichita Section - SWE and Wichita Area Sexual Assault Center (WASAC) this Second Saturday from 12-4 for an afternoon celebrating women makers! This is a pay-what-you-want event with all donations benefiting WASAC. Schedule of events:
12-4pm: Bring in something for us to screenprint - any t-shirt, dress, bag, you name it. We'll have different designs to choose from, stay tuned to this event for a preview!
12-4pm: Wood ornament crafting - make ribbon and butterfly pins in honor of WASAC's mission.
12pm: MakeICT Orientation and tour, similar to our twice-monthly Maker Monday event, come see all the areas of Wichita's Makerspace
1pm: Wichita Society of Women Engineers' advice for parents and educators to empower young girls and make sure no talented kid is left out of STEM fields
2pm: Presentation from WASAC about their mission and what they're doing in Wichita
For the screenprint jam event you'll bring white or light clothing items and we'll screenprint a 12" single color (black) maker-inspired design on them. Shirts, hoodies, dresses, pants, bandanas, bags, use your imagination! Fabrics that are very thin, wrinkly or ribbed don't work as well but we'll try anything.
Guests and families welcome. Come check out Wichita's Makerspace!
