Live in Philly and looking for a chance to meet up with fellow makers? Well, here’s a splendid opportunity. Make: Philly is holding a meeting this weekend!

Make: Philly November meeting – Sunday, November 22nd, 3PM

GUEST SPEAKER

Dana Schloss is a curious and enthusiastic museum nerd. She has been an exhibit fabricator, prototyper, museum educator, and exhibit designer in many museums in Philadelphia and around the country. She’s currently playing and prototyping on the New Science Centre Project 2011 at the Telus World of Science in Calgary. She will share her work and experiences to date in exhibit design, fabrication and education.

OPEN MAKE

A staple of all our meetings is Open Make — an opportunity for you to share with the group a project you recently completed…. if interested in presenting email us at [email protected] to reserve your spot

MAKER CHALLENGE

During the second half of this and every meeting we break into teams and build something to meet the objective of the ‘maker challenge’. For this meeting we’re going to design and build a “Maker’s Museum” — a suite of museum style mini exhibits in just 45 minutes. Teams will select a topic in the theme of “How Things Work” and build an exhibit that teaches how something works through interaction and visuals but without using any words. Teams will keep their topics secret from other teams during construction. At the close of the meeting, everyone will get the chance to tour the museum exhibits and guess what each exhibit is about.
