Due to public health concerns, the Adventure Science Center was closed during the March meeting. As an alternative to our traditional in-person meeting, we hosted our meeting online using the Zoom conferencing software.
As many of you have noticed, our group is growing - at every meeting there are new faces and new projects. Growth is good! With each new person we add excitement, experience and wonder to our little corner of the Maker community. Of course with growth in numbers, we also need to grow our support for those numbers which is why we have decided to invest in some upgrades to our online presence. While our original site was great and absolutely helped grow our community, it, like all websites, needs to grow and adapt to changing technologies and demands.
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.
