We are a School MakerSpace program. We started in September 2014. Our students meet once a week after school to learn about 3D printing, robotics, electronics, and computer programming. Our students were introduced to these topics in the fall and chose a project for our first MakerFaire that they would complete during the spring semester. It has been a very busy year, but has been amazing. We enjoyed showing off what we learned at our MakerFaire and we would like to showcase our projects at the Orlando MakerFaire.


The ProtoVoltaics Pick and Place Machine replaces hand placement of SMD parts with a fully fuctional Pick and Place. The machine accurately places 1000 parts per hour. It uses computer vision so there is never any errors. Also, it has automatic part feeders and automatic tool changing so it can complete any job, and never need to be babysat. This machine will bring manufacturing back to the makers!
