Joining us at this weeks meet up is Grant Cooper from Robo Challenge Ltd who will be bringing a selection of cool gadgets which have been featured on TV.
Grant and the team at Robo Challenge have been commissioned by many high profile clients including: BBC One, The Gadget Show, WD-40, Toolstream, Life Science Centre, North One Television, thinktank Birmingham Science Museum, nominate and Silverline.
Most recently Robo Challenge hosted the 2014 UK Championships, one of the main features of this years Gadget Show Live at the NEC. The Robo Challenge area displayed lots of cool engineering projects that have been built for The Gadget Show TV series over the years including their world record setting chainsaw powered dragster and wii mote control robot.
Make sure you come to the meet up this Friday and hear Grant talking about what himself and the Robo Challenge team have been up to recently with The Gadget Show.
Pitch Your Project
For anyone who wants to, you can give the room a brief (2 mins or under) overview of a project you are working on and need help, or a skill you have to offer to anyone who’s looking. That way, you are guaranteed to talk to someone who is directly relevant to you. Genius right?? (Disclaimer: No one will force you to pitch. You can stand at the back, smile and nod. Perfectly acceptable.)
Our now infamous “free drinks” social
I would like to think people come down for the friendly banter and cus they love us. I suspect however the free beer helps… Mix, mingle, collaborate, get creative – drinks are on us :)
