Communication with Space

Pop by The Making Rooms stand to laser-cut your very own, personalised Voyager Golden Record. Our laser cutter will engrave your name into an acrylic disc in just a matter of seconds!

The Golden Records were audio discs sent into space in 1977 with the hope of communicating with undiscovered lifeforms. Etched on the records were details on how to play them; the very same etchings that will be on your replica record.

Our team will teach you about exciting new technologies like 3D printing and laser cutting. We will also be displaying some of our fun projects and show you how to create your own.

The Making Rooms is a place where creativity, technology, and advanced manufacturing come together in a community facility for use by businesses, artists, inventors, students, and children (just about everyone!). Here people can design and make anything from scratch; high-tech products, toys, artwork, home decor, t-shirts, and much more.
