Learn About AREA 59 at this Month’s Chamber Luncheon
Join us Tuesday, Nov. 13, as we learn about Area 59. The Gillette College extension campus is open to anyone of any age, and it’s Wyoming’s largest maker-space. It’s designed to explore the possibilities in computer generated, 3D printed materials, used in conjunction with traditional wood- and metal shop creations.
Through a partnership between Gillette College and Energy Capital Economic Development, Area 59 hosts camps for K-12 students to explore STEM fields in a creative setting. Gillette College students and local entrepreneurs are also able to test out innovative ideas at Area 59, without the financial risk of purchasing their own equipment.
Director Ian Scott will present about the facility at the Gillette College Tech Center, with catering provided for by the Railyard. Following the lunch and presentation, those interested are invited to Area 59 on South Douglas Highway, for a tour and dessert.
Cost is $25 for Chamber Members when purchased before Nov. 7, then $27. $35 for the public. All are welcome.
