A group of makers in the Kansas City area is organizing a meeting to talk about the forming of a Make: KC group. They write:

Do you enjoy creating new inventions or taking things apart to see how they work? Maybe you’ve seen some of the do-it-yourself projects in MAKE magazine but you’re not sure how to finish certain steps.

This is an opportunity for tinkerers, inventors, makers, artists, and crafters to share your knowledge and inspiration with others from young to old in a family-friendly atmosphere.

We are planning for this meeting to include some show and tell projects using Arduino microcontrollers, as well as organizational topics and planning for future events as we launch this new group.

Here are the details:
