March 1, 2011 – Show & Tell
We have some exciting news and the BTC Fab Lab is a great place to tell you about it. Rumors are flying about a Maker Faire for Kansas City so we hope to announce a “Roadmap to a Maker Faire” along with our “Maker Summer” plans and activities.
New Show & Tell location:
I hope everyone will make it out to the Youth Technology Fair and VEX Robotics Competition this Saturday Feb 19. This should be a lot of fun.
We are setting up a table to exhibit for Make:KC. If you can come out and help support us that would be great. We will begin setting up at 8:30 am with the event running between 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Come out and join in the fun and meet new people so we can grow Make:KC to represent all of Kansas City.
Make:KC participated along with the HMS Beagle Science Store supporting the Orbit performance at Union Station's Gottlieb Planetarium. We each manned informational booths in the gallery area to interact with patrons before, between, and after the performances in the planetarium.
Despite the blizzard we are going ahead with our Show & Tell tonight. Our venue has changed from the Fab Lab at the Business & Technology campus and instead we're all coming over to your house... (In the form of a webcast).
We are planning to have a Skype Conference and push that out to Ustream for broadcast. Failure is an option, we're trying to piece things together this afternoon to be ready by 6:00 pm.
We had a great time with the Community Science & Technology Night.
There were four news crews out to cover the event. Cynthia Kramer with SCOPE Missouri did a great job raising awareness of science and technology which also provided us an pportunity to get our message out about Make:KC.
Check out this one from NBC Action News: Inner City Youth Get Science Exposure.
