What interests you in Makerspaces?

My wife, Joelle Foster, is the Director of the Canadian Youth Business Foundation (CYBF) and I am involved with Rampup MB. Essentially I am a mad scientist with a big heart...we hope to make some friends tonight. We have visited once and were impressed with the Makerspaces.

What do you like to build?

Just as an introduction to your space, we would be exploring the potential for allowing us to build a Ad sign that utilizes some electric motors to achieve motion. Our hypothetical brand name for the contraption is "HeliMotion Ads". Just working on the prototype for fun right now. Also drafting a loose business model. My goal is to help a gifted young man express his talents and provide you with a future member. Also, by being around other makers we can have our prototype critiqued for iteration. Hopefully, we can bring the prototype back to his high school to get a team of young people working on building a scalable business with it.


Hi, I am an innovative mind who loves to make stuff. I also work mentoring young teens as a respite worker after hours. I have a young 16 year old who loves to work with electronics. We have a project we would like to prototype.
