The next Make Rhein-Main will take place in Frankfurt on March 18 & 19 and it would be cool to represent our community there, ideally prepared a bit further in advance than last year and with something the visitors can actively take part in.

We're signed up as "community workshop/tech lab with project showcases including foam cutting and biohacking" - if you have any ideas and/or would like to help, please let us know during the Weekly Making Hours or send a quick eMail to Lukas!

Ideas[edit | edit source]

  • project showcases (which ones?)
  • foam cutter for kids to try out
    • we'll also need markers/pens and sketch paper for them to develop designs
    • many wires can be expected to break, so we'll have to charge a small fee
  • last time we tried to make "business cards" on the spot, this time we should laser a bunch in advance!
  • Thermocycler from Biotop group, we can even arrange an impromptu PCR reaction with interested people

Things to Pack[edit | edit source]

List of things we should bring - needs to be cleared with everyone in advance, of course):

  • foam cutter, replacement wires & various kinds of foam
  • power supply for the foam cutter
  • a cool donation box
  • off-site toolkit (needs a bunch of new supplies, e.g. tape)
  • poster, photos, business cards
  • some magnets and clips
  • (ongoing) projects of our space and makers
  • biohacking stuff
    • Thermocycler
    • pipettes
    • tubes
    • reagents (?)
  • extension cords
  • recycled laptop display as info screen
  • lasered cubes
  • <what else?>

Logistics[edit | edit source]

We still need to decide where we will sleep and how we will get to Frankfurt.

In the building, we will hopefully be given a "beer table" and access to electricity (details pending).
