On Wednesday, July 25 from 7:00 – 8:00pm at Queen’s Square, you’ll learn the basics of using Tinkercad to design your very own 3D object and how to prepare it for 3D printing. Make sure you bring a USB.

Get ready to DIY! Learn how to make your own bug spray in Gardening & Beyond: DIY Outdoor Skincare on Monday, July 30 from 6:30 – 7:30pm at Preston. This program is led by Jen Novakovich, founder of The Eco Well. She’ll also teach which useful ingredients to use to keep bugs at bay, how to use them effectively in your products, and important considerations when you're choosing a bug spray.

We’re looking forward to seeing you in July at Idea Exchange!
