Sask Science Centre Ignite (Maker Faire)

Post by adamsonofwilliam on Sat Aug 16, 2014 10:41 pm

As discussed at the meeting today, we've been invited to a maker-faire-type event at the Sask Science Centre.

We would bring general creations of all sorts showcasing what we do with the opportunity for demonsrations or 'workshop-type' things during the show.

It runs on October 10th (Friday, 9-5) and 11th (Saturday, 12-6)

Who'd be interested? What day?

I might be able to do both days but I'll have to see...

The Saturday I could do for sure, it's the Friday that might be questionable.

Yeah, I would be unavailable for the Friday - but might be able to do the Saturday for a bit. What were you thinking of displaying? Should it be more stuff that clearly demonstrates a particular technique?

I would think creations from various themes, scales, sizes ,that sort of thing. By the time the show comes around I should have a SHIP made, we could do a bit of micropolis, some of the larger scaled cars, those sorts of things.

I've sent in our registration for the fair and we're good to go. They're giving us 3 lanyards for the show, which will allow for various people each day if need be.

As it's a two-day show, having different people would be nice, but not a necessity. I'm thinking of taking the Friday off to have someone there, and I could probably do the Saturday too if need be.

Anyone else interested in either day?

Follow up...

The show was held over the past weekend! Here are some pics from the event: https://www.flickr.com/photos/sasklegousersgroup/sets/72157648280745779/

Tim was in attendance with his marvelous mosaics taking up the entire first wall of the display space.

I was there with a number of my creations including the Borg Cube (only showing), RC car, 9v Jousting, "Oh Snap!" and some other 'built-on-site' bits and pieces.

Chris, Ray J, Trent and Karen all spent some time in and around the joint on Saturday, and were some much-appreciated company.

We'll see if this event is held in future years, and determine our involvement at that time.
