Event Details

Make your own solar powered insect that moves around and makes noise! Cut out your bug, decorate it to the nines, and then make a simple circuit using conductive tape, a solar cell, and a motor. 

This project is part of our annual celebration of making, All Pikes Peak Makes. Learn more here.

Take and Makes will be available beginning on October 11 at the Library 21c, East, Sand Creek, and Manitou library makerspaces as well as at the Calhan, Cheyenne Mountain, High Prairie, Fountain, Monument, Old Colorado City, Penrose, Rockrimmon, and Ruth Holley libraries. Available while supplies last.
