Makerspace Open House

  • Hi Everyone!

    If you haven’t heard already, Kamloops Innovation has partnered with Kamloops Makerspace to host a variety of workshops/events coming up in the next few months.

    To kick off, we’re putting together an Open House on Friday, January 29th from 1-3pm for anyone to drop by, take tours of the space, demo/check out new equipment and technology, find out more about membership opportunities and workshops that you hold.

    We’ll be supplying refreshments.

    There is a registration page:
    If you plan to be around, you can let us know here on this topic. Any questions, feel free to ask myself or @arasbm!

  • Here is what we have planned for the open house tomorrow.

    • @Bradley-Maker is giving a tour of the wood shop
    • @Tyler will be giving short demos of the CNC router in the wood shop
    • @Nicholas and a few others will be working on the vacuum former in the metal shop
    • @Chris and Steven will be demoing Froggy, the CNC mill that they repaired and setup recently
    • Helen (@chris’s doughter) will demo her bio 3D printer project that is currently work in progress
    • @Chainmaildave will be doing some chainmail
    • @Bishop will show off his latest helicopter simulator panels

    If you are demoing tomorrow, please come around 11am and set up. ShowTV will be at the space to record a video. We will expect our guests for the open house to start arriving around 1pm.

  • Looks awesome!

    We have 25 rsvps, and possibly a few drop ins. Refreshments will be delivered by 12:45 from Simply Catering (New Life Kamloops - neighbours!). See you all in a bit!

  • That was an awesome event! Thank you everyone who volunteered to give a demo. Thank you @amanda and Kamloops Innovation for organizing and supporting the event. I look forward to many more great events in collaboration with Kamloops Innovation.
