Description 

DIY to MWO: From Do It Yourself to Making with Others - presentation by Pete Prodoehl, a member of the Milwaukee Makerspace, a place for people who like to build, invent, tinker and/or learn new skills and expand their minds.

Presentation held in UC-131.

His presentation will discuss various aspects of the DIY (Do it Yourself) or Maker movements.

Prodoehl has been making things (or trying to make things) since he was a child. Sometimes succeeding, and sometimes failing, but always learning. Along the way he's built robots and lasers that didn't work, screen printed thousands of t-shirts, built 3D printers, edited a few technical books, published thousands of photos, and sold over 200 USB keyboards that only type one character.

This event is part of the Tuesday Talks lecture series focused on the DIY campus theme at UW-Fond du Lac.
