The annual Holiday Open House at Hamilton's Bitterroot College is Friday.

The school at the corner of 9th and Main will have holiday refreshments from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. December 8.

The public is invited to tour the facility, visit with the faculty, staff and students and see some program exhibits, including the versatile FabLab (fabrication laboratory)), that includes a number of 3D printers, laser engravers and other computer-driven fabrication implements. You can find out about entrepreneur opportunities and more. There's even a project to develop a robot (see photo).

Of course, you can look at the next line-up of courses at the college and celebrate the community. The Bitterroot College University of Montana has more course information at their website.
