AMMF prep including bottle cutting, 3D flexagons, and oobleck hopscotch

The Atlanta Mini Maker Faire is only a couple weeks away!  Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 26, 2013 at Georgia Tech from 10am to 5pm. This is a free, family-friendly celebration featuring lots of hand on exhibits and activities. And of course, Decatur Makers will be there. We will have two adjacent tents and host 4 different activities:

-  Origami flexagons
-  3D flexagons with wire and straws
-  Oobleck Hopscotch (8 ft long, full of bizzarre non-newtonian fluid)
-  Bottle cutter (see
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFXngPx3w3M starting at 3m:38s)

There is still work to do to get ready, so our October meetup will be to test out the activities above, to make sure everything works smoothly at the Faire. 

BRING empty wine bottles (cleaned with label removed) if you want to help test our bottle cutter.  We could also use some cases to hold bottles, and we'll need a lot more such bottles for the faire (anyone know a restaurant or bar owner who can help us out?).

Whether or not you can make the October meetup, we REALLY need your help at the Faire.  Please volunteer for one or more 2 hour shifts using this volunteerspot link

    Sorry I missed, but I'm still planning on volunteering for a block of time (is there a sign-up sheet for this?) Also, was there anything else covered that a volunteer may need to know?

    Nice turnout, had a fun time. Really getting psyched about the ATL Maker Faire. I unfortunately have another engagement that day, but might be able to drop in at the end.

    Are the "3D flexagons" just regular hexaflexagons?

      Will there be dry cornstarch out tonight? It is the dry/powdery that is not good, when it is wet we just won't touch it.

      The dry cornstarch will only be present when we open the box. We will mix it with water to make oobleck.

    I have a 5 pm appointment with my tax accountant. If it's not too late after finishing, I'll come to the meeting.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
