I’ve been remiss in updating the latest happenings with the Makerspace.
Here’s a few things that have been going on since the last update.
Teen Tech Extravaganza!
Our second collaboration with the Mobile Public Library was a lot of fun.
We then had a planning meeting for April, we came to the decision not to have any events in April.
A couple weeks later we found out about Mini Maker Faire New Orleans.
Several intrepid members trekked to Louisiana to participate.
It was really great to see such fantastic support for our nearest Maker Faire.
Stay tuned for more pics and links and reports….
That brings us around to today, when we made our way out to Downtown Mobile and got the know the Rumor Union at their meeting this evening. They are doing some really cool things to promote Art and expose the work of more creatives and artists, our goals seem almost parallel. I think there will be more developments to come out of this meeting of groups.
Members: if you have pics from these events, please consider sharing them, email me a zip file of pics or something!
If you are bringing a project to the Teen TechExtravaganza please get in touch with the maker group ASAP. If you need power or a table we need to plan these and other details.
The planning meeting will be Tuesday March 11th at 7pm at Panera Bread on Airport Blvd in Mobile.
The Teen Tech Extravaganza hosted by the library and put on by Mobile Makerspace is 4 days after this meeting. This meeting is the deadline for project readiness and we will discuss what accessories and fixtures we will need and how those will be provided.
Thanks for your help and support.
The Teen Tech Extravaganza!
We will be showing our DIY tech projects to the public.
Come show off your projects or look at what others have built.
We are collaborating with the library with this event to bring the excitement of making to local teens and students.

@Mobile Public Library Moorer Springhill Branch.
Mobile Makerspace member Rick Green is experimenting with his Raspberry Pi as a Cnc controller stacked up with a Gertboard, CNC Shield and Four Polulu DRV 8825’s
This should allow pushing four steppers up to 1.5A with 1/32nd of a step precision.
Hopefully see some results from these experiments later this weekend.
March 1 @ 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM
We’re all gonna get together and have fun working on our projects. Join us at Ricks house, bring your projects and toolbox. We’ll have an outdoor space setup to work. Along with the fab shop and lots of computers.
If you don’t have a project you can have fun taking something apart (we’ve got lots of out of use items). Build an engraver from 2 dvd drives? We’ve got all the stuff, just come and hack around on it and have fun with the rest of us.
