REMINDER: We’ll be doing a Maker Saturday program, starting at 1pm at the Exploratorium, beginning this Saturday, June 30 for six weeks ending, August 4. You can come and watch the live half-hour program in person or watch the webcast, which will be available on the Exploratorium’s website. Each Saturday, Dale Dougherty of Make and Craft magazine and organizer of Maker Faire will introduce a Bay Area maker and talk about his or her projects. In addition, we’ll have a “cooking-show” segment where the makers shows us how to make something.
We’ll kick off the series with Paul Cesewski who has built his own train car to ride abandoned rails in the North Bay. A self-described shop-nerd, Paul can be found working at the Shipyard in Berkeley as well as building rides for the Cyclecide Bike Rodeo in San Francisco. Come learn how Paul makes train wheels for his dual-powered train car and talks about the joys of “reverse pioneering” – Link.
