Take those old pennies and make something new!

Wondering what to do with your pockets of soon-to-be-useless pennies? The Vancouver Design Nerds will be hosting a “Penny Nerd Jam” at this year’s Maker Faire, and will invite participants to turn pennies in to fantabulous objects! The jam will be happening for an hour on both Saturday and Sunday. More details on the timing of that jam to come.

We found a pretty stellar re-use of them from Shane Walton. It takes some time, but so do all things worthwhile and shiny.
