September’s out; October’s in!

Posted: October 6, 2014 2:08 am

September was a (uniquely) quiet month for us – but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy!

We’ve had some fun painting the Little Free Libraries, which will be installed soon. We’ve also been helping design and build a pedal-powered speaker system for an off-the-grid concert coming up on October 19th. If you go to the concert, before to look for MakeICT and say hi!

We’ve been doing some event planning as well, so there’s plenty to look forward to! In the next couple of months, be on the lookout for a brand new workshop on DIY bookmaking! We’ll also be doing 3D Printing 101 for newbies, an advanced 3D Printing workshop, and possibly a CNC Milling workshop as well.

And of course you know, since we’re in October now, so it’s time again for our annual Halloween challenge! We’ll be judging by category this year, so stay tuned for more details. In the mean time, have a look at some of last year’s submissions!

Right along in the Halloween spirit, our devICT group is taking a break from their regular monthly meetups and planning a Halloween Mixer!

Lastly (but certainly not least), we’re going to try something else totally new: a Sumobot tournament! A Sumobot is a robot that you can build which competes against another Sumobot to shove them out of a ring. We’re designing a customizable kit which will be given to teams and individuals who register. Along with the kit, we’ll be doing workshops prior to the tournament, so that you can learn absolutely everything you need to know to make a champion out of your bot!
