Basic Power Tool Safety Class–4th Wednesday

Free to members.

Based on a curriculum developed by the Power Tool Institute. After this class you should be proficient in using the basic shop tools at Maui Makers. Space is limited, so reserve a spot by emailing info@mauimakers.com.

I know that some of you are already proficient, but we still need you to learn about our shop rules and demonstrate proficiency. And this is the easiest way to do this. You get to watch a movie and hang with Pete. Pete knows how to break things…I mean really break things…in fact he made a career out of it…You want to meet Pete.

Join us at Outback in Kihei  this Saturday for food, fun and building.

Please RSVP to classes@mauimakers.com by noon on the 30th so we can get a head count.

Instructables has given Maui Makers an awesome set of Strawbees to play with.

Strawbees are clever connectors that let you construct just about anything from ordinary drinking straws.

The kids had a blast with them, making umbrellas, rockets, hats and geodesic domes. Now it’s the adults turn…

You can even build things that fly:

Maui Makers at Honolulu Maker Faire

Maui Makers manned a booth at the Honolulu Mini Maker Faire–over 1025 people in attendance. The action was non-stop and our booth was a great hit.

 

As usual we overachieved:

  • Practical 3D printing to make useful parts, as well as just for fun…
  • Magnetic braking
  • Resin Jewelery
  • Fun with LEDs
  • Wearables
  • Fun with Magentism and Motors

And the stars of the show:

  • Letting kids draw with the 3Doodler pen; and
  • Gocupi–the open source robot that draws on windows and whiteboards

Look for the videos on Maui Makers youtube channel:
