Gathering in Columbus, Ohio, Saturday Oct. 11 (punch+pie) Answered

This Saturday, October 11th, 2008, we will be having an open-house "inauguration" at the Steampunk Laboratory's new facility at the Millworks, at 2034 Leonard Ave, Columbus, OH, 43219.

The Steampunk Laboratory is the name of an educational program to teach science and engineering through art, which we have been developing over the past year or so. We are now expanding that idea into a community fabrication and education center, and we have recently (i.e. last week) "graduated" from the Milo Arts Center, where we began, and are now located in a stand-alone brick building at another artists' community called The Millworks.

Although we won't yet be quite operational (we're aiming for January '09 to start offering workshops and memberships, and the cnc is going through an iteration), we -are- going to have a little party commemorating moving into the new place, and are eager to invite interested people, communicate our goals, and share ideas. (But mostly it's an excuse for a deadline to get ourselves cleaned up and presentable as soon as possible! ;-)

We'll have snacks, drinks, and music from 7pm to 11pm or so, this Saturday. Our building is located at the Millworks, whose address is 2034 Leonard Ave. The address of our building is 2038 Leonard, but it's tucked away inside the art community. To find it, turn into the driveway at the Millworks and park in the paved lot. Then walk past a large building on your left; turn left onto the gravel lot, and then turn right past the warehouse; our brick building is tucked in the corner beneath the wooden awning.

Please feel free to bring kids, interested friends, and something to eat or drink if you like (but not necessary).



Sorry for the one day notice, I've been the busiest little bee at the ball lately. Kiteman, it was splendid. Almost every person in attendance knew what a cnc was. It was almost like the first time I found instructables and was assured I was not a lone nut. Professors were in attendance extolling new forming techniques through very high current induced magnetic fields. Everyone was enthused for the potential of the individual to harness technology and serve society more fully. In short, nearly heaven. I will certainly try and give more timely notice for any future functions. Whoo-hoo!

Excellent - why not encourage your associates to join and post here? Start a group to collect their projects, have slideshows of regular events etc.

I must have told at least 20 people about instructables that night. I always plan to document projects and then get caught up in them, without taking pics along the way. Maybe we'll try and come up with a documentation procedure. I do have a few things brewing....

Hmmm. I'm not sure I could have attended anyway....but a one-day notice?

How did it go?

Counts on fingers...

I hope you all have fun!


OK... now, "How did it go?"

. Hey! Kiteman! Notice that this was published at 0738, but didn't show up until ~1330 or so? It seems that others are having problems with "delayed posts" - just not as delayed as your's.
