Ylab Holiday Break and Early 2016 Plans

December 21, 2015
Not a creature was stirring.
Not a creature was stirring.

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the DDOme,
Not a creature was stirring in the maker’s new home;
The basement room floor has been painted with care,
In hopes that equipment soon would be there;

The paperwork done, agreements written and read,
As plans for new robots danced in their heads;
Maker nights on break, ’til the old year is done
,
But working new projects, new ideas, new fun.

Just in case you were not able to make it through that horrible verse…

We’re taking a break from maker nights for the rest of the year, and we’ll be off and running in 2016 starting on Monday January 4  with member-only nights (Mondays, and another weeknight TBD), and weekly open house for visitors on Wednesdays.

Until then, there’s lots happening behind the scenes. Now that so much of the administrative stuff for getting the space started is done, we’re putting some effort back into planning new events and projects.

Some of the things in the works:

  •  A ham radio class, to be run jointly with the DDO and the York Region Amateur Radio Club.
  • Light sabre making project and classes. Our first 3D printing class will include the option of designing your own light sabre hilt.
  • Our first ylab corporate event, featuring some great tech company leaders from the area. Hint: keep your calendar free for the evening of Monday, January 25.
  • Our Robotycs team is looking for a group project.
  • Getting a team together to work with the DDO on more cool stuff for their 2016 Halloween Haunted House. Hear that, Robotycs people?

Lots more possibilities, so please give us your feedback… and preferably by joining the discussion on our meetup.com group.

On that note… and to all a good night.
