Awesome! I'm at the King's Fair meeting now, and the PR person wants to interview some of us in a short video. Would you be interested?Orkraider wrote:Wayne, I saw your sign up sheets, I noticed that someone filled in a name that I suspect isn't real; I meant to take that one down last night and discard it, but I spazzed it, I hope someone else will do so. It's the one by the yellow door.
Put me down for showing up with siege engines.
I'm sorry I haven't said so earlier, I was 100% certain I had something going on that day, but I can't recall, so now, whatever it was, get's bumped.
noon to 5, yeah? Hopefully someone will be able to give me and some siege engines a ride?
who's with me?
Good suggestions, but remember that we'll likely not have AC power. I'm at the Hack Factory now and though you describe the boards I"m looking for, I can't find them from your location description.smittex wrote:If you're talking about breadboards on some kind of corrugated plastic with 9v batteries, they're on the wall parallel with the door of the classroom, approximately to the right of the electronic component desk.
I think it would be neat if we had some ham radio stuff there -- something visual, like the HF waterfall on a computer screen while radio communication can be heard. Or maybe a yagi communicating with a satellite or ISS.
And fire would be great too! Maybe a demonstration of Potassium Chlorate and a Gummy Bear? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=txkRCIPSsjM I think I remember someone mentioning they had a standing wave propane tube... Those always attract a lot of attention.
The Liquid Nitrogen ice cream would be pretty cool as well.
Ferromagnetic liquid demonstrations.
A cheap nerdy or science toy would be great to give out. Micro marshmallow shooter? Silly putty? Pet rocks? lol, writers block...
Sometime before ten, we'll need to help load up and transport the "wire monster" sculpture to the park, if they say it's alright to bring it. I'm hoping to get over to the H.F. for a bit yet this evening and start putting together the display. I'd like to be able to print out some pictures for the tri-panel board. I think our meetup time on Sat. would depend on how far we get with preparations before then.Orkraider wrote:what time are we all meeting up at the space?
Is anyone passing near, by, or through downtown saint paul on their way to the space?
I ask as, I'm looking to hitch a ride.
Let me know, I'm stoked!
