Making Awesome is signed up for the "Love-to-Ride; Tallahassee Bike Challenge". Please consider joining our team and participating by riding at least 10 minutes sometime during the challenge (Nov. 1st - 30th). You can ride anywhere, or anytime. There are some amazing prizes including a bike donated by local hero's Damn Good Bikes, a trip to New Zealand and more.

Riding your bike to Making Awesome just got a bit easier with the new roundabout and the bike lanes along Railroad Ave, and remember, you don't need to fight for a parking spot.

You can register at https://www.lovetoride.net/tallahassee/signups/new?locale=en-US

In the spirit of the Bike Challenge, why not build something for your bike at Making Awesome? Here are a few ideas:

Bike parts and bling you can print on the Making Awesome 3d printers: http://www.thingiverse.com/search/page:1?q=bike&sa=. I'm especially fond of the bike vase (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:608093)

Or, pick a bike project from our friends at Instructables: http://www.instructables.com/howto/bike/

Whatever you do, be sure to sign up and ride your bike!
Love to Ride is all about getting people back on bikes and making cycling fun. Whether you haven’t cycled before, you used to cycle when you were younger, you cycle now and then or you cycle all the time. We want to show you how much fun cycling can be.

Our current computers in the space are getting a little long in the tooth. Right now, most of the desktop machines are of the Pentium II era (1997-1999). They work fine but are really slow. If you have something newer that you're willing to donate, please be in touch. We could also use a video projector for the classroom.

Come join us at Making Awesome for a week of learning the basic concepts of programming. Appropriate for middle school and high school students, as well as adults, this class is designed to take your from having no coding knowledge to understanding the concepts that are important for coding in any language. The class will be taught in Python. The classes will be held over the week of Spring Break, March 14 - 18, from 6:00pm - 7:00pm.

The class starts on Monday evening and runs for five days, one hour per session. The class is being taught using Python, an open source language that is simple enough for kids, but so powerful that scientists use it to control sophisticated instrumentation.

The class is being taught by David Baucum, who says he'll teach you how to think like a programmer. While the course is being taught in Python, the concepts are applicable to other modern programming languages. Look for a registration link tomorrow (Thursday).
The class will be one hour each evening for five days. The class will start on Monday, March 14th at 6PM and continue on Tuesday, Wednesday,Thursday and Friday evenings.

You can bring your own laptop for the class. We have a few loaner computers available for use in class. We'll get Python loaded on everyone's computer during the first class session.

We're sorry for the short notice, but this will be an excellent class, and it's worth changing a few plans to be able to participate. While the class is open to children and adults, participants under 18 will require the permission of their parents. Participants 15 or younger must be accompanied by a parent. The class will cost $80 for non-members and $60 for current paid members of Making Awesome. To register, go to http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/2514695.

A MakerSpace for Tallahassee
Introduction
Making Awesome is the name of Tallahassee's first Maker Space, a community of people who share tools, talents and materials to make real things that they couldn't make with their own individual resources. Common projects at other maker spaces include electronics, robotics, 3D printing, fabrics crafting, metal working, and just about every combination thereof.

Our mission is to provide a space for collaboration, learning and doing. We believe that sharing our skills is just as important as sharing our tools. Making Awesome is dedicated to teaching anyone who wants to learn how to make anything. If we don't know how, we'll be happy to learn along with you.
