February 5, 2019

With a cold, snowy start to 2019, you probably need indoor distractions. Why not try out the latest additions to Think, Make, Investigate: Carts & Kits at Steenbock Library?

Have a great design or artistic idea that you want to see come to life in vibrant, colorful plastic? Try one of our new 3Doodler 3D pens, now available for use within the library. Filament of many colors is available for purchase through our vending machine. Don’t have any ideas begging for the 3D treatment, but you still want to give the pen a go? No problem! Check out our research guide for some ideas to get you started. Feel free to add on to your 3D creations using the supplies on our ever-available, ever-portable Start Cart.

Starting this semester, you can take home a littleBits synth kit and explore circuitry and sound through a scaled-down version of a vintage analog synthesizer. We’ve designed this kit so that you can record your homemade beeps, skronks, and ambient noise to soundtrack your next presentation or intrigue that electronic music fan in your life. littleBits are also a great way to teach yourself the basics of circuits and livecoding.
