Thanks to everyone who visited our booth at Fall Fest last Saturday in downtown Garden City! Our goal was to let the community know what we’re about, gauge public interest in our different Labs and show off some of the cool things our members will be able to make when the MakerSpace is up and running. It was a great day!
Yuriy brought his 3D printers from GCHS (where he heads up the Robotics team) and Chris brought his laser cutter. We ran 3D prints and laser-engraved pieces all day, making a few
custom designs with visitors and explaining how the equipment works. Yuriy also brought one of the robots he built, along with his camera-toting drone. Overall, we drew quite a crowd!
We met a ton of great people, and had all kinds of interesting maker-y conversations. Also, we had 52 people sign up on our contact list, indicating their interest in becoming GPMS members. Most of them also indicated which Labs they’re most interested in (woodworking, textiles, etc.) so we know which areas we should focus on first. Overall, it looks like the Woodworking Lab and Fabrication Lab were at the top of the list, followed closely by Welding and Textiles.
If you weren’t able to make it to our booth, but you’d like to be notified when memberships are available, leave a comment below! Also, check out the Lab List and let us know which Labs you think you would use the most.
