This is a special edition of the MakeHartford Public Nights, which are normally unscripted non-agenda meetings. On the first Wednesday of each month, however, we host a Show n Tell event and do things a little differently.
This night is still a great time to come in, see the space, and meet other members of our maker community. You can still work in the space and use equipment without being a member (assuming you have completed the required safety classes). However, you can also sign up to show your latest creation to collect feedback, pitch an idea, or just show off.
Projects do not need to be completed (or even started) in order to be shown. Sometimes issues arise even before fabrication / construction begins. You may bring the same project to the space again and again for additional feedback if needed.
As a presenter you will be asked to complete a short questionnaire about your idea. We ask that all presentations be under 15 minutes, including questions and feedback. If you need more time please let us know ahead of time so we can schedule appropriately.
We will be meeting in the classroom which has an HD TV, projector, wifi, and white boards. Please let us know if you need additional AV requirements before the event so we can ensure that you have everything you need.
6pm - Public hours start with socializing and introductions.
7pm - Show n Tell begins.
We will stay open until 8pm, until everyone who has brought something has received feedback, or as late as people want to keep working - which has meant midnight on some occasions.
30 Arbor Street
