I'm going to be helping out at the Young Makers event this saturday
and I've been told to invite other NBers. Anyone interested?  If you
have something you'd like to bring to show the kids, that would be
awesome.  I would have liked to bring some of our EEG stuff but
Andreas and Josh are both out of town, so it's really not feasible.
Also, if you do bring stuff, I think they're considering it a sort of
pre-maker faire sandbox.

This event is themed around circuitry and wearables but I'm sure there
will be other stuff too.

Subject: [Noisebridge-discuss] Fwd: Mentor wanted
To: NoiseBridge Discuss <noisebridge-discuss at lists.noisebridge.net>


I got an email from Dale Dougherty, who started MAKE Magazine and the
Maker Faire.  He's looking for someone who would like to mentor some
kids to help them make something cool for the upcoming SF Maker Faire
in May.  I'd be doing this, for sure!, if I were in town.  But, as I'm
on the East Coast through the end of the month, I thought I'd ask
here, as Dale asked if anyone at NB might be into mentoring.  Here's
what Dale wrote me:

     I've organized a mentoring meeting at TechShop
     this Saturday from 10:30-1pm.   We are working
     with Pixar and the Exploratorium on a Young Makers
     program that will involve four Saturdays at the
     Exploratorium and some small groups of young makers
     working with mentors to build something for Maker
     Faire.   I've wanted to have a discussion about how
     makers can be good mentors and what we can learn
     from the community about ways to engage kids in
     making things.   I'd love to have you join us if you can
     or send someone else from NoiseBridge who might have
     an interest in this subject.  You've certainly done a lot
     in this area.   We will have a mix of teachers, makers
     and others -- 30 people or so.

If you are interested, please email me off-list, and I can hook you up.
