Individuals and organizations interested in being involved in Maker Faire Detroit are invited to a community planning meeting, Sunday, January 24th at the Henry Ford in Dearborn. Meet at the clock tower entrance at 3:15!
You know the drill. Public welcome! Bring a project to work on, or don’t. Bring snacks, or don’t. Bring a friend, definitely.
I’ll be here with the doors open by 7pm. Check the i3Detriot twitter feed to see if it’s open earlier, if you’re in the area earlier.
As you may have gleaned from the calendar sidebar, there’s robot building underway at i3! We’re hosting two FIRST teams, 1216 from Oak Park and 3302 from Clawson. If you’re not familiar with the First Robotics Challenge or this year’s game, take a look!
To get a sense of the issues and questions that teams must tackle, check out the Chief Delphi forums, where students and mentors hang out.
In case you haven’t been peering too closely at the calendar sidebar, tonight is open shop night! I promise to have the doors open by 6:30pm, but if you knock earlier, there’s a good chance another member will answer. Swing by!
What is open shop? Basically, it’s your excuse to come hang out. Bring a project to work on, or don’t. Bring a completed thing to show off, or don’t. Bring a friend, definitely.
We’re at 322 e. 4th st, 48067, hiding at the end of a nondescript little driveway. (If you’re having trouble finding the place, look for 323East, the art gallery across the street. They have a huge graffiti wall, you can’t miss it. Oh, and Bethany Shorb’s exhibition opens there tonight!)
Combine a dozen geeks with a pile of musical instruments, and strange things happen. Like, for instance, strapping a camera to a drumstick.
Also, FIRST kickoff today! Woohoo! Stream starts at 10am, if you want to watch online. UPDATE: Robotics festivities here at the shop (322 e. 4th st, 48067) will commence at 1 PM, including a replay of the broadcast.
