Jamie, Eva and Tony may participate.  I'm sure there will be others. We have the Codeshield bring in Arduino projects Soldering workshop - Mark will lead the soldering of each participant's Codeshield in the morning, then we can code with them in the afternoon. Eva will submit application by March 15.

International Arduino Day : March 28, 2015

http://blog.arduino.cc/2014/11/24/save-the-date-for-arduino-day-2015-saturday-28th-of-march/

Jamie, Eva and Tony may participate. I'm sure there will be others. We have the Codeshield bring in Arduino projects Soldering workshop - Mark will lead the soldering of each participant's Codeshield in the morning, then we can code with them in the afternoon. Eva will submit application by March 15.

Hot Watta

Hooking up the hot water tank will be too expensive. We really don't need it, and this is not as much a priority as other projects for the shop.

Workshop Phone

We currently have Diyode phone with an ATA device from Adrian. DO NOT Use long distance! There is another option so that we don't tread on Adrian's toes - a service with a $56 one time charge. Long distance is not allowed. We *can* use 911 on this second system. This was supported and will be implemented.

Master Cabinetmaker Tool Instructions

Mark has a friend who has retired from a professional woodworking vocation. Mark has suggested that he come do workshops in exchange for a membership. He can teach tool use and safety instructions - He could give us instruction sheets. He is very skilled. This suggestion seemed popular.

New Laser Parts

http://www.rabbitlaserusa.com/WebShop/index.html Simon found that shipping from China was expensive We could get the laser bed from the States, other parts from China Could a welder make a slat table

Make wood box for clean wood

- Jamie to make sign - Ed to empty (for now).

Social and Environmental Justice Symposium
