  • Minecraft Summer Camp

    June 20, 2018  9:00 am - 3:30 pm
    125 Centerway, Greenbelt, MD 20770, USA

    We lost three days of our spring break camp to snow days, only to get them back at the last minute. Alas, this means we now lose three days to our first Minecraft summer camp! No worries, we will switch to a daily fee and accept drop-ins on a daily basis. So put on your combat helmet and mining boots and come explore our new Minecraft worlds. We will have lessons on exploration and tactics, command blocks, redstone circuits, javascript mod programming, and lots of game play!

    Wednesday Night Knitting (and other Fibery Pursuits) is a weekly event for yarn enthusiasts of all stripes. Part social, part technical, Knit Night is not a class but you will find experienced knitters to help you with tricky techniques and patterns. It’s a classic stitch ‘n’ bitch. We knit, we talk, we quilt, we crochet; we occasionally drink beer.

What is MakerSpace?

The Greenbelt Makerspace is a non-profit activity center located at 125 Centerway, Greenbelt MD 20770. If you know Old Greenbelt, we are on Roosevelt Center Plaza next to the City Theatre. We opened in April of 2013 and have worked hard to develop resources and programs to engage our members in activities related to science, technology, arts, and crafts. As of 2014, membership in the facility is free. We depend on voluntary donations from “sustaining members”, and general donations, grants, and sponsorships. GreenSTEMs Inc., a non-profit Maryland corporation formed by Eva Fallon and George Boyce in 2010.
