Engineering Discovery Days Success!

A big "Thank you" to all volunteers that helped us out during Engineering Discovery Days. The work room was packed pretty much all day on Friday. We couldn't have introduced that many children, parents, and teachers to the wonders of additive manufacturing without the help we received from our volunteers.

Open Workroom Cancelled Tomorrow

Hi WOOFers,

As mentioned in our last post, tomorrow April 25th is Engineering Discovery Days. Because we will have hundreds of kids coming into our space to see our awesome projects we will not have our regularly scheduled open workroom. If you have pressing questions for us you can come in after the event ends at 4, but since we need to keep the space clean for Saturday we can't let anyone work on projects. 

If you are so inclined, you may come in during the event and help us out. If you know all about 3DP then you can help us present to the kids. If you're still a 3DP novice then come on in and listen to our veteran members so you too can become a 3DP guru.

Engineering Discovery Days

We'll be introducing thousands of children 3D printing/additive manufacturing and our projects on Friday and Saturday, April 24th and 25th. The workroom will be open and needs volunteers from 9:00AM until 2:00PM on both days. It was a great event last year, and we ended up being one of the most popular stops. We are in need of volunteers, so please contact your officers and let us know if you can make it for any amount of time.

PAWS-On-Science Event

Hey you WOOFers,

This Saturday will be the PAWS-On-Science event! We're going to be sharing a booth with the UW Garbology team, and will be discussing our work in sustainability at UW. We're going to be focusing on Big Red, and how we've taken material from the waste stream and have used it in printing.

We will also be talking about 3D Printing in general. We'll have a couple printers there, making things!

This is a great opportunity to teach some kids about 3D printing, and get them excited about the technology! All WOOF members are welcome to register: This is also a great way for YOU to learn about printing. We guarantee that by the end of the day, you'll be an expert at talking about these printers!

The event is from 10AM to 6PM this Saturday, April 5th. It's not required to attend the entire session! We'll be heading down for setup at around  8:30 - 9AM.

The venue will be the Pacific Science Center:
200 2nd Ave N
Seattle, Washington, 98109

Here's the link to register

Fill out your information as needed. The "Title of Booth/Group Name" is WOOF and UW Garbology. On the second page, hit "no" for "Does your activity require access to water". You can also leave all the check boxes on the 3rd page blank, since we don't need to register for any training sessions.

Please send an email if you do register, so we can get a tally of how many people we can expect!

See you there!
