Proof-of-concept of a print-in-place ball & socket joint. It works beautifully! On Thingiverse here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:943899

Used TinToy http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:719762 to make a large network of tetrahedrons. It's very light and quite strong. We now have it hanging in our living room. A version in your Makerspace could be a great way to promote thinking about networks and triangulated structures.

I am looking for some vendors for LittleBits besides the LittleBits company and radio shack.  I also need to find a quote for the Popular Science Kit.  If any one can help me out, I would appreciate it!

Steel is amazing stuff. To be able to 3D print with it...wow.
The oldest of Amsterdam's approximately 1,280 bridges in use dates back to 1648. The city is famous for its beautiful canals and waterways, and Dutch engineer

I wonder what that bridge would be like if they could synthesize spider-web filament instead of steel.

Some hubs for making regular tetrahedral structures using dowels. The hub holes can be easily resized in SketchUp for different diameter dowels. Files are located on Thingiverse here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:916646

Looking forward to seeing the maker movement's creative and fun contributions to the 2016 campaign... on all sides.

Here's mine. :) http://www.thingiverse.com/Fredbartels/collections/bernie-things

Oh.
Thanks for that clarification.
I hope my perspective is counted. It's completely valid.
Have a good one.

A fun project that involves some careful planning, measuring, and execution. The bulbs are available on Thingiverse here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:561399 Just resize them via SketchUp for the size of the holes in the plywood. All the bulb bases are the same diameter so if you resize one in SketchUp they will all be resized. The LED strip is from AdaFruit. The effect is magical. :)

I'm researching makerspaces for a school project, would anyone be willing to share their original (or current) business plans?

For anyone delivering an elementary Makerspace program or anyone who would like to give helpful input:
Looking for input about the schedule of Makerspace in elementary schools. For example, we offer Makerspace time 1x a month for 1 hour for students in grades K-2 and again 1x for students in grades 3-5. At the middle school in our district, it is offered 4 days a week with rotating themes each month. How do you structure Makerspace?

Are you doing research? Would love to collaborate with you about our 6-12 grade experiences and yours.
