We participated in this event in 2016. It is an interesting opportunity for outreach.
Mike Werling did this item solo. While this is a good event for the maker movement in general there is limited benefit directly to Makersmiths. Participation in future events should be considered with that in mind.
- Find out how big the space is ahead of time, the table was very small and hard to lay out our stuff
- Having the portable/wheeled box was good since the trip was made on the metro. Consider that for "Makersmiths in a Box". However, the box I picked didn't fit through the security scanner
- Interactive displays are better than static projects. How can we make things more interactive and still highlight the capabilities of the space?
Set up starts at 4:00, we can arrive a little early to get through security.
