Latest MTRAS News
Whistle Stop Weekend is Nov 16th. The Science Center has asked MTRAS to come and setup a table. This is something we do every year to show the Science Center how much we appreciate them allowing us to use their space and is also another great opportunity to spread the word about MTRAS. Whistle Stop is all about trains. All sorts of different scale trains will be on display from different clubs and individuals. You would be surprised how much robotics is involved with the hobby train world. There is lots of automation which ties right in to what we do. We will have a table setup from 10am - 4pm. Come out and display some of the cool stuff you've been working on. Even if you don't have anything to display, hang out with other members and help spread the word.
C ya there.
GMX is right around the corner from Nov 1st - 3rd. As we mentioned during the past meetings, your very own MTRAS members, Patrick and Steve, will be hosting another "How to get started in Robotics" panel and capping it off with a SUMO Robot competition. Want to help out during the panel? Let us know. Also, we were able to bring "Robot Battles" back to GMX this year.
GMX will have a special "Maker Room" where MTRAS has a table. Feel free to bring any of your projects in to show guests anytime the room is open. If you cant volunteer, no worries as the table does not have to be staffed. We will have business cards, fliers, and our banner setup on the table.
Here are the panel times:
You don't want to miss this event!! Our September 21st meeting date falls on the Nashville Mini-Maker Faire event that is being held at the Adventure Science Center. See http://www.makerfairenashville.com/for more details. We will have a table (probably several tables) with projects and robots (big and small). If you have a project (or projects) you would like to share, bring it. Even if you don't, plan on attending. There will be a lot of makers displaying their projects. The faire will be from 10am to 5pm.
See ya'll there!
