June 2013 Update

May 31, 2013 4:59 pm

What do you plan to make this summer?  Need some ideas?  Need a place to build stuff?  Need help?  MakeICT exists to help with those needs.  In the month of June we have multiple opportunities for you to come and see what we’re all about.  We have new equipment available to members, like a small lathe and drill press.  The CNC router is going to be operational soon and we will host a workshop to train interested people how to use it.  And, if that’s not enough, we are acquiring the parts to build our very own 3D printer!  Come make with us!

June 3: Public hours from 7 to 9 pm at Bluebird

June 15: Annual Cookout and Maker Gathering from 6 to 10 pm at Bluebird (invite your friends!)

June 17: Public hours from 7 to 9 pm at Bluebird

MakeICT members will also begin hosting Teen Tinker Tuesdays in partnership with the Wichita library on June 4.  If you are interested in volunteering at one of these mid-afternoon workshops for teens, post here, and please spread the word to any teens you know who may be interested!

Do you have any completed projects that you made and would like to share?  It would be awesome to highlight local makers here on our website, so send us a note if you would like to submit something or know someone who should.

Don’t forget to participate in our forum where we are planning our trip to this year’s Kansas City Maker Faire and discussing things like electronic ignition of fireworks!
