Otterbein University is reaching out to a younger-than-usual crowd with a series of four upcoming "maker" events.

Maker Mania, held in partnership with the PAST Innovation Lab, will allow students to team with parents and teachers to create and build take-home projects. Activities include a paper speaker, smartphone microscope, wooden glider and more.

The programs will be held from 2-4:30 p.m. Oct. 16 and 30 and Nov. 13 and 20 at The Point (the new name for the STEAM Innovation Center) at Otterbein University, 60 Collegeview Road.

The cost is $10 per student per session, free for parents and teachers. Advance registration is not required. For more information and to register online, go to pastinnovationlab.org/events/otterbein-maker-mania.
