A Look At Our Second Annual Do Space Open House
November 14th, 2017 | Taylor Enderle
We celebrated our second anniversary this past Thursday by hosting an Open House and we couldn’t have asked for a better celebration with upwards of 150 people stopping by! We transformed the space into a place of festive excitement with bunches of balloons and Do Space-themed cookies. It was amazing to have so many people come help us honor the achievement and see everyone having fun exploring new technology.
On the main floor we had our 3D printers on display for people to try their hand at making fidget spinners and a few other technology demonstrations for attendees to explore. Our staff and volunteers were there to help guide people in their exploration and answer any questions they may have.
If you were to journey upstairs, there were more activities and tech kits to test out and learn about. People of all ages lined up for our robot obstacle course with our Code-A-Pillar and Dash & Dot tech kits. However, few were able to master the course. After you tried your hand at the obstacle course you could play with other tech kits like Puzzlets or enjoy some light refreshments.
For our volunteers, we set up a space-themed out-of-this-world appreciation reception. Each year we reward our volunteers based on the number of hours they’ve contributed to us and our mission. They are welcome to bring their families with them and it’s a great way to let them know that all that we do wouldn’t be possible without them.

Thank you again to all who came out to celebrate, and for those who weren’t able to make it thank you for your continued support and enjoyment of Do Space!
