i3 Detroit is never one to back down from a challenge and one has been issued. Our friends at Air Command Water Rockets released a series Four-Square-esque challenges for the art of building water rockets. WE ARE IN.
To take on these challenges, we are going to explore a weekly meet-up for brainstorming and testing the challenges over the summer.
The first one will be this Wednesday at 7p. It’s a bit short notice because we were also asked by a local magazine to write up a family friendly craft and we are going to do small water rockets for it. Photos due ASAP.
Come join us for the fun and lets get some of those challenges marked off. For other hackerspaces reading this, we would love to have some other challengers and make this really big for Air Command.

Coming soon to a welding table near you!
On Saturday June 11th noon – 4pm, we will be exploring once again the powers of welding metal together with current.
Due to limited equipment the workshop will only have a small bit of one-on-one. There will be plenty of time afterwards to practice your skills.
Knowledge on torches, arc and stick will be covered, possibly some demonstration of our new TIG.
Welders should wear work or shop clothes without openings or gaps, to prevent arc light from reaching the skin. In fact, those even working close to arc welding should also wear protective clothing. Clothing should always be kept dry, including gloves. The clothing should also be 100% cotton. Some of the welding will produce strong IR/UV rays which will cause a nasty sunburn on unprotected skin. You’ve been warned.

Not only are we doing two 10-student classes but we are allowing the public to vote. There will be a vote on which epsiode will be viewed at each class. After the class, each painting will be uploaded online and the community will vote on the best one. The winner will win a free class at i3 Detroit. Don’t worry. If you are embarased, you can use a false name. Based on the ruckuss from last class, there will be many questionable paintings. We still question how dinosaurs, volcanos and UFOs ended up on the last class’s paintings.
Join us 2/26 at 5pm and 7pm for an amazing event where you will find out if you can keep up with the legend, Bob Ross. Only $20 gets you 1 hour of fun but the mockery you will get from hanging it in your living room will last a lifetime. All materials will be provided at the class. Voting for the pictures will be posted next week.
