I've been a fan of Paulk's workbench for a while but didn't have the time to design and build myself. Apparently this has gone viral since and Ron is offering a variety of his designs and plans. I think I'm going to build some items for our space. Let me know if you are interested in helping.

Love Mike Rowe. This guy is an inspiration to makers everywhere and the reasons are clear; he is the spokesperson for people who build things and showing those folks that success can be theirs outside of the conventional thinking in our society today.
Day 1 of Make-it Days at the Creative Discovery Museum was great! A lot of kids got to drive the robots around and smash them into one another. Thanks again to Kyle, Sarah, and Tim for helping run our station today and to Jason and Seth for stopping by and hanging out for a bit.
We're going back tomorrow to do another demonstration from noon to 4:00. If anyone is available tomorrow who wants to help run the booth, let's meet at Chatt*lab around 11:45 so I can get you a parking pass.
This weekend I participated in the GE hackathon. It was a blast. Our team didn't place, but it was very fun regardless. Great stuff. The winning team converted an oven that would read a UPC code off of a product like a pizza box, and preheats the oven to the right temp and sets the timer accordingly. Very sharp.
