Upcoming in November

Coming in November

We had some great classes in October and more to come in November!

Maui Makers is still working out the details of the November schedule, but expect to see Arduino, Wearables, 3D printing and more Tinkering. We will be meeting every Thursday at St Anthony and hope to add more dates shortly.

Business Matters

On the business and organizational side, Maui Makers has incorporated as a 501c3, and elected a Board of Directors and Officers. The Board has completed a Strategic Plan and a Preliminary Budget to take the Makerspace to the next level. In that light, you’ll be seeing a few changes in the near future:

A paying membership structure will be set up to help us pay the bills–electrons to keep you informed cost money. We are committed to keeping costs low, but will need your help in pushing to the next level with more tools, classes and a permanent space.

Members will get free or reduced cost access to classes.

We continue to explore space options. We have yet to secure affordable, unlimited access to a permanent home. If you have any leads in this area, please contact the Board at info@MauiMakers.com

A limited number of computers and Arduinos will be available. If you have a laptop or Arduino, please bring it.

ARDUINO

An Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform that allows you to easily go from an idea to a functioning prototype using inexpensive and widely available parts. If you can dream it, you can build it.

Check out this very good introduction video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqrQmQqpHXc

Join hundreds of thousands of Makers who have discovered this easy, powerful (and educational) platform.

Busy Maker Meeting on April 11 2014

We had a really good ‘meeting’ this past week (Thurs April 11).

Lots going on – Ben Ward and family brought in their Hexy robot again – its been built at past meetings by the kids with some assistance. This time we got it moving!!

Bunch of arduino work going on. Devin worked a bit on his mobile network setup – same antenna that feeds our space from his home covers a wide area of central maui apparently.
