NoCo Mini Maker Faire 2013

The first ever Northern Colorado Mini Maker Faire was held Saturday October 5 in Loveland. Around 3,300 people attended and there were 120 maker/ demoer/ exhibiter booths. SSD had a table with a few of our projects, info about our space, and a revolving 2-4 members present and excited to tell passers-by about our space. We talked to many people and hope to see some of them at our meetings as time goes by. In addition to our SSD table, at least 4 of our members had their own tables / displays at the event as well.

This was the first annual NoCo Mini Maker Faire, and the organizers of the event plan to hold more like it in the future. See makerfairenoco.com to learn more about the organizers, to stay tuned and to see more photos from the event. Thanks to John Maushammer and John English for the photos below, and to all our members who spent time manning our table throughout the day at the event!

Day of the Dead Party 2011 Recap

Thanks to all who waded through wicked weather to attend our post-Halloween party on Tuesday evening November 1. We had more types of lights than you can count on 2 hands and more importantly, dozens of people stopping by to see them! Special thanks to John E. for wowing everyone with lasers, fog, and sound-reactive flowers (as seen at Burning Man, Apogaea and other events); Peter for the awesome music; and Rudy and Liz for the food.

If you missed the party, remember you can always stop on by on any Tuesday evening starting around 7:30 for our weekly public meeting, and/or check in with us if you want to stop by on a Saturday afternoon or other time!

Thanks to Mollie for the photos!

Saturday the 14th

Rain didn’t keep us from having a great time at the space this past Saturday. We still barbecued, built stuff, collaborated, got creative, had a lot of fun! Photos from Dan D-B.
