Duct Tape Network at Waring Downtown

A Fun, Hands-on Makerspace for Children 7-10


Bring Stories and Inventions to Life

Waring's chapter of the Duct Tape Network provides a fun, hands-on makerspace where children 7-10 can use cardboard, tape, wood, fabric, LED lights, motors, and more to bring their stories and inventions to life.


The Duct Tape Network at Waring Downtown

Take a look at some projects designed and built by members of the Waring's Duct Tape Network.

More about the Network:

Waring's Duct Tape Network (DTN) gives young people the increasingly rare opportunity to build things that they care about. In the process, children have fun, feel good about themselves, and acquire important skills for life.

Using low-cost, low-threshold, everyday materials, DTN is about transforming ordinary spaces into extraordinary making spaces.

Waring Librarian Sarah Carlson-Lier along with Waring students lead the program that is open to the public.
