Meet our Fall Maker-In-Resident Steve Jahnke

Come work with our Maker-in-Residence during our regular hours on Fridays and on the last Sunday of each month from September through December.

Steve works as a designer and engineer for his families fabrication company, Training Towers. Steve's work ranges from designing architectural model for heavily modified 3d printers to setting up and running their 6' x 18' CNC plasma table. Steve has a diverse background running industrial lasers, water jet cutters and worked as a welder and industrial process mechanic.

From miniatures to large scale projects, Steve's work brings the worlds of the decorative and the functional together. He keeps his kids busy running around the family business building interactive robots and cubicle forts. He believes that sharing new and experimental technologies with the public is what the maker movement really is all about.

You can find Steve in the MakerSpace most Monday evenings and Saturdays.

The Black & Veatch MakerSpace at Johnson County Library is where Library patrons can meet up with the brightest minds of the maker movement. The Maker-in-Residence program, which offers a four-month residency to a local Maker of note, is made possible through a grant by Black & Veatch.
