We would like to give our members a chance to share their work. If you have a project to share let us know what the project is and how much time you need ( from 5 to 15 minutes).

Update: Mayor Patterson was one of only 20 mayors at the first ever White House Makerfaire recently and she has agreed to come and give us an overview of her experience. If you are curious about this event you will want to attend this workshop as she will talk and answer any questions.

    Hi, I'm from Benicia and I'd like to share my team's award winning project "Acclimessence" as an example of advanced fabrication methods mixed with arduino. Even if it's too late to share at this meeting, I'd still like to attend and see what else is going on.

      Sounds good. Whatever works best. I'll make it available to the group as often as possible when needed.

      Ryan, sorry we didn't get to your project last time. We made our meeting in August another open project night, so let me know if you still want to talk about your project.

    Also loved Mayor Patterson's talk. Great ideas about a path of value for the Benicia Makerspace, and helping to put us on the map!
    Would also like to think more on Joseph Rizzi's presentation: what can the Makerspace (with help from the Mayor perhaps) do to bring this approach in to higher visibility?

    I have 2 projects that I am working on and would love to share with the group. Natural Desalination to end droughts forever in CA and Buoyancy Power to give us all the green electricity. About 10 minutes each.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
