Frank Colvario of Charlestown, is looking for members of the North Bennet Street School Caddies and Friends from 1966. Frank is on the hunt but needs your help if you can help him look for former caddies at Maplewood, Lake Tarlton, Clauson's Oyster Harbors and Wianno. There are plans in the works for a Caddy Camp Reunion/Summit in September of this year. If you know of anyone who might be interested in getting together to celebrate part of their past, put them on to this news story.

"The first step was open- ing the Maker Lounge in our East India Marine Hall -- the original building of the museum -- where 19 th- century Salem sea captains housed the innovations they discovered on their voyages around the world," said Juliette Fritsch, PEM's chief of education and interpreta- tion. "In this space, the pub- lic can take part in the real- time creative process and problem-solving methods of makers. The maker com- munity is part of a growing grassroots, movement at the intersection of do-it-yourself and technology, and at its core is a commitment to sharing ideas and testing things out." The first Maker-in-Resi- dence at PEM, product de- signer and Salem resident Ryan White, is in the midst of a six-week project focus- ing on wearable technology. White has transformed the Maker Lounge into a "Design Process" laboratory to research and generate new ideas for wearable tech- nology. Existing wearables include things like the popu- lar bracelets that measure your daily steps, clothes that change color depending on your mood and shoes that vibrate to tell you whether to turn left or right. Maker Lounge visitors are invited to share their ideas about wearables and participate in the design process to see if their ideas could progress to a viable product.

"The kids who come into the Maker Lounge are just so honest. Anything goes. Let's create hover shoes. Why not?" As part of his residency, White has been working with a group of students from Salem's Phoenix School. He began by showing them im- ages of examples of wearable technology -- baby monitors, Google Glass, Fitbits, contact lenses that measure insu- lin levels, bike helmets that have light-up turn signals and smart watches. On the walls, he wrote the problem- solving process for design: IDEATE, PROTOTYPE, TEST. The students began by com- ing up with ideas like a toothbrush belt, a ring with GPS capabilities and wind- shield-washer glasses, Some ideas were then chosen for development, sketched and prototyped using the Maker Lounge's 3-D printer. White then proceeded to work with the students on all aspects of how a product goes to consumers, from designing packaging to branding and marketing. From a professional stand- point, White said he's also been  able to network while in the Maker Lounge, meet- ing potential design clients and other makers along the way. NEXT UP IN THE MAKER LOUNGE Through the month of April, meet David Yann Rob- ert, an artist featured in PEM's Branching Out: Trees As Art exhibition. Robert's residency will involve his background in recording the bioelectrical signals in trees. His 17-minute time- lapse video and sound piece called Boktrdd (beech tree) is currently on view at PEM.
