SPI678: Materials Selection for Makers

Are you jumping into your first projects as a maker, but you aren't sure where to start?

An important first step is picking the right materials for your projects. But you might ask, "How do I know what material to use? Should I make it out of wood or metal? How can I pick the right type of plastic? And what's the deal with composites anyway?"

This class will help you answer all these questions so you can dive into making your projects with confidence. After examining the four categories of materials -- metals, ceramics, plastics and composites -- we'll see how to use the equipment at TechShop to form these materials. At the end of class you'll have a list of good starting materials for your projects.

So, come ready to discuss your project ideas, and we'll help you turn them into something real.
