First, I'd like to thank everyone for attending this past Saturday morning. Because of you, the event was a lot of fun! This meeting was the first at our new time of 10AM CT. As Patrick stated in the event details on our facebook page, "...we will be be able to host workshops starting around 1:30pm. This opens the door for lots of possibilities. Want to spend an hour teaching Arduino? What about 3D printing? Have an idea for a badge build? We can now better accommodate these types of events with our new schedule." We did have an open workshop during our afternoon workshop time. More on that below.
We began our meeting a little late this morning to allow folks to adjust to the new time. We did get underway around 10:30 with announcements of upcoming events as highlighted below. These will also be listed in our Events Calendar.
A big thank you to the following presenters:
We also spoke about the new MTRAS.com website and objectives for the site as the group grows.
During this first workshop, a couple of groups formed to look at, work on, and discuss various items. One group worked on a quadcopter that the science center owns. They were trying to figure out why it is not responding to commands as expected.
Just about everyone took a turn enjoying Jason's VR setup. Many enjoyed racing cars, riding an amusement park ride, and I took a stroll aboard the Starship Enterprise.
Most folks broke up into groups to discuss technical details or issues they were having with their own projects.
