We have a variety of activities planned for this month! Come check out what we’ve got going on:
Slow-Motion Camera Demo
When: Thursday, June 6th @ 7:00pm (alongside our weekly Open Hack Night) Where: Columbia Gadget Works, 1404 Grand Ave, Columbia, MO
Ever wonder how some Youtubers get those amazing slow-motion shots? Or maybe you’ve had something in mind for years that you know would look so cool in slow-mo? Well, on the first Hack Night of June, one member will bring his Krontech Chronos 1.4 high-speed camera to our shop so you can see first-hand how motion gets so slow. Learn about the strengths and weaknesses of high-speed video as we shoot a number of demonstrations of the technology.
Print-Your-Own T-shirt Night
When: Thursday, June 13th @ 7:00pm (alongside our weekly Open Hack Night) Where: Columbia Gadget Works, 1404 Grand Ave, Columbia, MO
Learn about the t-shirt creation process and support our makerspace as One to One Print Shop brings their mobile screenprinting rig into our shop for a night of fun and making!
Shirts cost $12 each and are available in two techy designs. You may pre-order to ensure we have your desired size and style, but it is not required to attend. If you would like to buy a shirt but cannot attend the event, simply pre-order and pay online. We will hold onto your shirt until you can pick it up. Pre-orders will be accepted until Sunday, June 9th.
Makerfaire Kansas City
When: June 22nd and 23rd Where: Union Station, Kansas City, MO
Columbia Gadget Works is returning for our third year to Makerfaire Kansas City! In our booth, we will be demonstrating some old favorite projects alongside new ones made just for this year. If you are already planning to be at the faire, stop by and say hello! Or come behind the booth with us and help spread the joy of making.
If you can’t go to Makerfaire but have a project you would like to show off, please let us know. We love to curate a wide variety of exhibits that reflect the diverse interests of our members.
