Kansas City: See Yourself as Never Before
If anyone is interested in getting together (April 10) to just eat and drink then I will be at Planet Sub. This is just South of I635 and I35. Nothing planned other than eating and talking. Maybe I will bring a Zombie game.
Science City's Town Hall Meeting Room, Saturday March 3 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
We're continuing a tradition started by the Kansas City Robotics Society (KCRS) of meeting at Union Station/Science City each month for a robotics show & tell.
Come join our bi-weekly discussion examining the impact of disruptive technologies on teaching, learning and finding ways to support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) based studies through Life-Long Learning.
Making: The Art of STEM
Plan to attend Make:KC's bi-weekly Robotics meetings starting Wednesday February 22, 2012. If you bring a cheap 2D scanner found at thrift stores, we'll take them apart to explore useful parts you can salvage. Also, if you have a robot you're working on then bring it along and show others. We'll learn how you can build your own custom robot parts at the Fab Lab.
This is my favorite one.
This month we have two Build Night projects planned.
The Cracker Box Amplifier will add volume to those of you who built the Electric version of the Cigar Box Guitar.
Our second project is a Laser Spy Communicator. This device will also make use of the Cracker Box Amplifiers.
Be sure to check out our Build Events Discussion Forum for more information.
Call for Makers, Volunteers, and Sponsors
As Make Magazine's web site announced this week, we are accepting applications for the RiverFest 2011 Mini Maker Faire that is part of the 43rd. annual Parkville Days celebration. There will be artists, crafters, live music, food vendors, beer garden, and more along with our Maker Village. Parkville Days typically attracts fifteen to twenty thousand people over a weekend.
We're looking for Makers to come out and exhibit their creations, provide engaging activities, and build projects along with the crowd. Make: KC is creating a workshop area we can share with you while we're building "As Seen In Make Magazine" projects and other creations visitors can assemble while here.
