WNY STEAM Conference Immersive Experience at

The Foundry

Tuesday, August 7th, 12 - 2 PM

The Foundry, on the East Side of Buffalo, is home to 27 small businesses and four makerspaces.  The not-for-profit organization helps community members incubate small businesses and they offer classes and workshops in their TechLab, TextileLab, Metal Shop and Wood Shop. Short sessions for adults and longer programs for school-aged students range from learning to use 3D printers and laser cutters to learning to weld. Participants have made wooden tables, sewed classic bags, upholstered a chair, and blown a glass in the Glass studio. The Foundry’s offerings work to support the maker in each of us. During our Immersive Experience tour of The Foundry, you will get a sense of the businesses on site, visit the four makerspaces, and stop in the Tech Lab for a short activity. Everyone will design a small object and one will be chosen to make a personalized lasercut keyfob.
