Water Rocket Meet-Up – 6/8 @ 7p

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.

Welding – Putting it together with power, June 11th

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.

Class Safety
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.

Reserve your seat
Costs:
$10 Material fee

As with most of our events, seating is limited, so you must make reservations on Eventbrite if you plan to attend. Thank you!
