  • RE: Got hologram?

    @Ron_Ron, I have a hackable xbox 360 to donate to this project for the gaming aspect, if you think it could help. I would like to see this set up somewhere people can play it every hack night. I am really missing @derpko’s arcade cabinet.

    I have been getting feedback from some people that the space is seeming to go in a more art oriented way lately. I think some people are feeling a bit put off. The work that has gone into getting the clay space up and running has taken over a lot of the administrative capacity, but seeing that this project is essentially delivered (thanks @Vaughn and ClaySpaceer’s!), and represents an incredible new capacity for the Makerspace, I am looking forward to seeing more of a technical focus in the coming months. And trying to incorporate the technical aspects of what we do to the second floor. @Ron_Ron, your work and collaborations are a great example of this succeeding already!

    Projects like this represent a great opportunity to engage people in developing a bunch of great skills, in a really interesting projects, that should have an incredible final product.

    Thanks for your help with the Arduino work for BCLC, and the support you have given me in developing materials for other purposes. I look forward to hosting a couple of Arduino workshops for the membership in the coming months, and I hope it will work with your schedule to coordinate on these.

    To anyone who feels that the focus has shifted at the Kamloops Makerspace, I would say that our makerspace is what we make it. I am happy to coordinate with anyone who has an idea to host a workshop, and isn’t quite sure where to get started.

    Thanks @Ron_Ron, thanks all!

  • RE: Scholarship for youth 16-18 in science/tech/arts/engineering/math

    I shared this on our facebook page and also sent it to BCLC Corrie that is coordinating the DWIT youth conference at Henry Grube (you may have already forwarded this to Wayne there).

    @Ron_Ron this is an awesome build @Ron_Ron - lets figure out a good spot for display. This is top-shelf eye candy. Good work re: Art in the Dark!

  • RE: BCLC - Request for volunteers

    This was really good today - me, @megan-fenkhuber @Ron_Ron @Nicholas @pierre (thank you all) promo’d the makerspace to 100’s of young tech-interested people. And enjoyed lunch.

    They asked us to participate more next year; we could have a table of demos and run a few presentations in our fields. Very good set-up and prime for promoting the Space to young people and families.

    I’d like to aim for presenters to be paid an honorarium for a quality presentation. Thoughts on that?

    The roster of what Kamloops Makerspace is ‘committed’ to yearly is getting a bit full; something to think about; maybe we should look at the whole oncoming year and specify what we are committing to.
