Fellow makers, as some of you may know I'm going to operate a table at the
Ottawa Mini Maker Fair on behalf of the Lab as a station for kids. I'll
have the laser cutter onsite and I'll cut out kids names in the form of
large necklaces (hollywood rapper style) that they can wear around their

I'll also have some Mini Maker Certificates that can be handed out. The
hope is that the kids can get their name necklace and then circulate around
to a few stations and get something added onto their necklace/name . Simple
things like a 3d printed bead, piece of yarn, piece of wire etc.. and then
come back to my station and get their certificate. We haven't nailed down
the add onto the badge thing so please chime in and let me know if you
would like to participate as part of what your already doing at the fair.

Britta tells me I've got a prime spot and a large table so I have room for
additional people who would like to volunteer and help me out with this
project. Also probably enough space should someone also have something that
could fit well with the theme. Darcy if you wanted to bring some of your
planes that would be super cool.

I also need some help Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon transporting
gear including the laser. I'll have my station wagon which I hope can take
the weight of the laser but I'll need help moving it and associated gear
back and forth.

I'm also putting out a call for cardboard, we may have a good supply option
but I'd like to have a backup plan. If you've got some used boxes that
would be good for cutting please drop them off to the lab.

I'm looking forward to the Fair, just a week away!
