I could swear I scheduled this thing for 3pm or something, but there it is, on Eventbrite for 1:00. If I told you it was later, that’s fine, we’ll be here all afternoon, so swing by whenever’s convenient!
Briefly: We’ll be poking and patching holes in tires. We’ll be changing tires. We’ll be practicing jump-starting, and reading “check engine light” codes. And you’re encouraged to come get your hands dirty! Non-members are welcome at this and every class, so RSVP or, frankly, just drop in. (I’m looking at reservations now, we’re 12 hours out and it’s not booked up…)
Last Thursday’s Filmmaker Meetup was a big success. We had lots of people show up to meet their peers and share their work. Many ideas were generated for future events.
Thanks to Madebydetroit and Silver Bullet Pictures for all their help.
Check out the work of some of the participants:
Who wants more newbie classes? WE want more newbie classes!
This one’s for anyone (member or not) who’s not sure where to start when wires are involved. Starting from scratch, we’ll talk about why and where electrical current flows, and then dive right into some hands-on experiments.
We’ll play with batteries and resistors, learn the basics of Ohm’s law, light some LEDs, and time permitting, probably play with some transistors too. There may be soldering. There may be long division. There may be small explosions and smoke. (That’s what happens when you send way too much current through a component. Intentionally?)
What are you waiting for? Go reserve your seat!
Ever driven a nail into a tire, just so you could practice fixing it? Me neither, but we’ll be doing just that, this Saturday, December 12th! Class space is limited, so RSVP ASAP.
This class (entitled “Coup-fourré!”) is for non-greasemonkeys. If you’ve ever been stranded with a dead battery or a flat tire, come to i3Detroit and learn the skills that’ll get you moving again. We’ll practice simple tire repairs, read trouble-codes from our cars’ computers, and learn how not to blow ourselves up with jumper cables. Full details are on the event registration page.
As with all classes at i3Detroit, non-members are welcome. Donations will help offset our costs, $5-10 is suggested.
With winter weather in full swing, you could wait a long time for a tow truck. After practicing these basics, you might not need one! See you Saturday?

For tours, just drop in before a meeting (Tuesdays 5-7pm) or any Friday evening (5-9pm).
