Makerspace Presentation (Rotary Club of Green Valley and Rotary District 5500 Matching Grant Project)

Jerry Kriebel volunteered to share his career with the Makerspace Club at a local school. The presentation included quite a bit of science, with details like the electron beam used to sterilize medical equipment can punch a hole in ¼ inch stainless steel in a fraction of a second. He described other methods -- gas and gamma rays – and the advantages and drawbacks of each. Pat Pease used a chemical dye and UV light to show how easily contagion can spread, and Michael modeled an epidemic with the MIT Scratch program.
