Family Hack Day
Jun 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

This is our first Family Hack Day. It’s Open Hack Night for kids and parents. And it’s in the daytime (duh).

You and your kids can come to Eugene Maker Space to build the project of your choice. Our workspace, our tools, and our expertise will be there for you to call on. This is not a class and only minimally organized — what you do is up to you.

Space is limited, so please RSVP to Bob, kbob@jogger-egg.com, if you and your kids want to come.

Space for mentors is NOT limited, but please RSVP to Bob anyway.

EMS Kickstarter Panel @ Eugene Public Library - Downtown
Mar 2 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

EMS is hosting a Kickstarter panel discussion at the downtown library. It will be held in the Tykeson room, look for signs when you enter. We have five guest speakers who have volunteered to tell their stories. In alphabetical order, they are:

Craig Godwin. Craig is a EMS member, launching his Kickstarter in March of 2014, for Light Dance, a device which synchronizes lights with music for both consumers and professionals.
Garrett Loveall. Garrett’s Kickstarter funded in August of 2013, July Nine provides a cloth bag for grocery shopping (or whatever else) that rolls up into a very tight package for easy transport.
Noelle Dass. Noelle is a local artist, often found at Saturday Market, and online at noelledass.com. Her Kickstarter funded in September of 2012, and produced a line of t-shirts with her whimsical artwork.
Piotr Esden-Tempski. Piotr ran a successful Kickstarter campaign, for VTOL UAV that was a cross between a quad copter and a flying wing.
Tim O’Donnell. Tim’s Kickstarter funded in July 2013, and allowed Camerosity Improv to launch a new show, celebrating the technology of the past.

If you are curious about crowdfunding, and want to learn more about particular tips and tricks to running a successful campaign on Kickstarter in particular, this is an event you will want to attend. It promises to be a lively and enlightening discussion. We hope to see you there!
