Students of all ages will create their own old school-style wooden tabletop arcade machine. Participants will construct and design a game cabinet, and assemble the electronics required to play dozens of available games including Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Frogger and Galaga. 


This workshop is perfect for do-it-yourselfers, vintage game fanatics, or families that would like to do a project together. Up to three participants can be covered under one registration fee.


Registration closes August 5. No prior woodworking or software knowledge is needed. Cost is $425 per arcade machine and includes all equipment and up to three students.



Located in the Hanson Technology Center on Lake Michigan College’s Benton Harbor Campus, the Fab Lab is a community space for people to learn science, technology, engineering and math skills through hands-on learning. Students can experiment with digital fabrication technology including 3D Printers, Laser Cutters, and Vinyl Cutters.


The Fab Lab is designed for students to develop problem-solving skills by trying to make things, sometimes failing, re-thinking and trying again to make the design better. LMC encourages creative thinking, determination and exposure to new technologies.
