Tinkerers, rejoice! When Burlington's Generator opens in the basement of Memorial Auditorium this month, DIY mavens, or "makers," of all ages will have access to shared workspace and tools such as laser cutters and 3-D printers. In addition to memberships and studio space, the Generator will offer classes for kids and families in 3-D printing, soldering and computer-aided design. "It's important that we're family friendly," says executive director Christy Mitchell. "Kids nowadays pick up on stuff so quickly, you could even have kids teaching their parents new skills here."
