Starting September Make: Provo will be a monthly only event. We will no longer be doing a weekly public night at that point. We have updated the website calendar to reflect this. (There will be a once-a-month public Make: Provo meeting the first Saturday of each month.)
Here are some of the reasons why we have decided to switch to this model:
*** It is a lot of work to host a public night every Saturday (even though we currently don’t do a whole lot, we still have to make sure we are there, the doors are unlocked, etc)
*** We would rather have one “big” night once a month then several small nights.
*** This will give us more time to concentrate on our projects so we can show them off on the Make: Provo meetings.
*** We would like to extend the hours that Make: Provo runs. (details on the calendar)
*** We would like to start providing a free public electronics / science / etc demonstrations each month. This will help with that as we need planning time. If you are interested in teaching a class / giving a demonstration please contact us via email or PM on the forums. (Details will be posted a month in advance on the calendar)
As an example Septembers Make: Provo will include a 30-60 minutes class/demonstration on using the TI TLC5940 ic. You are encouraged to bring a MCU and some LED’s if you would like to play with one of ours for a couple hours.
As a side note: we have a nice new public desk area set up for you to set up your projects, and we are working on getting computers at all 8 stations. (We do have additional seating as needed.)
