People are starting to notice…

We’re happy to be here, and we’re just weeks away from our first set of classes. In the meantime, check out what the BizTimes had to say about our operation.

We also got positive feedback from our first Teacher Studio that was held in January. (If you missed it, there’s more to come!) Here’s a comment from one of the participants:

“I liked how we focused on one activity and then had time to talk with other participants. During our discussion we brought up different ways that we could use and/or adjust the activity to be relevant in our programs.”

We love being able to share our resources and knowledge with other educators, and look forward to hearing future success stories from them when they implement things in their own classrooms and makerspaces.

If you want to find out more about Brinn Labs and what we’re doing here, check out our events. We’ve got a lot going in this month. And if you can’t attend any of the classes, be sure to stop by on March 1st, 2018 between 3pm and 8pm for our Open House. We’ll be giving tours, showing off our equipment, and offering some hands-on activities.

Teacher Studio

We had a great turnout for our January Teacher Studio. Over twenty people joined us for our free professional development program for K-12 educators implementing making, makerspaces, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) learning.

We’ve got four more Teacher Studio events coming up, so if you missed this one, catch the next one. (We do ask you to register though, so we know you’re coming.)

Welcome to Brinn Labs!

Welcome to 2018 and welcome to Brinn Labs!

You may know us from our work building exhibits for the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum, or from producing Maker Faire Milwaukee, or maybe you’ve attended MakeShift in the past, or are part of our Teacher Studio program.

Basically, we’ve got a lot going on, and we want you to be a part of it! If you’re interested in making or learning new skills, we want to help. Besides everything listed above we’ll be hosting classes and workshops at our new location in Bay View.

We hope to see you at our new space, in fact, we’ll be having an open house on March 1st, 2018 where you can come in and check it out. See you then!
