EVENT: Maker Expo at Ignite Institute - March 28, 2020

Good morning!

Boone County Schools’ NKY Makerspace along with Ignite Institute in Erlanger are putting on their fifth annual World Maker and Inventor Expo this year on March 28 from 10 AM to 3 PM. I plan to get a booth at this event so we can do some outreach and bring out the Learn to Solder equipment.

I invite you to volunteer for this event. If you’ve never done one before, it’s a great opportunity to connect with folks and spread the good word about our growing space.

Here’s a short summary from http://themakerexpo.com -

The World Maker & Inventor Expo is a celebration of making, inventing, problem solving and innovation with robotics, 3D printing, drones, aerospace, coding, micro-computing, CSI, Arduino, graphic design, engineering and much more. The family-friendly expo will feature projects and programs from over 100 schools, universities, companies, and organizations in the greater Cincinnati-northern Kentucky regions. Enjoy workshops and competitions, including drone relays, 3D design, outlaw derby races, as well as delicious pies, fries, kabobs, sandwiches, waffles and shaved ice from area food trucks!

I’ve put a signup sheet up at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jeVdTE-50d05Bk5CUkXz7WmmCCWyMef4TTRUoNa6FuA/edit?usp=sharing and it should not require you to sign in to make your edits.

If there are any questions or ideas, please reach out on this thread!

If you need any supplies for LTS, let me know. It’s still early enough I can get PCBs from Laen if necessary.

I think Brad and I are going to try to get a supplies count next week and we can let you know. Thanks for the reminder!

Yes I will try and do a LTS inventory this weekend.

In a move that should surprise no one, I was notified today that this event has been cancelled.
