Announcements pertinent to Make:KC
I still may not understand the BLOG , ( not to mention the Page , the Story , entry for Home page) . But, I do think we need to be a part of informing our members and the public about our MAKER SUMMER ! so far we're just so-so. We should be the GO-TO-GUYS for info on the MakerFaire and the MiniMakerFaire
I hope to see More MAKER SUMMER info taking Front Page space on MakeKC ! Especially KC's 1st MAKERFAIRE at Union Station !
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.
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.

Have you ever thought of geocaching with an autonomous robotic vehicle?
Robomagellan in Kansas City
This looks like fun, its like a robot capable of finding a geocache in a park. Try hacking into a 4 wheel drive RC car chassis then add an onboard processor, web camera, GPS antenna and various other sensors to create an autonomous vehicle capable of tackling outdoor terrain.
