Call for Maker Faire

No Gravatar

Hi everyone,

The WCRS has a table at this year’s Calgary Mini Maker Faire!

We are looking for a few people to assist, and to represent the WCRS and the WCRG.

We need commitment on volunteers to properly plan this; the day is filled with meeting the public and representing what we do best – ROBOTS!  Capacity for this year’s event is around 1500 people a day, and all attendees are people who have paid admission.

This year’s event is being held at ACAD

If you have an active robot that can withstand a few hours of demonstration, or have a fondness to talk and a cheery attitude, we need you!  We are looking to fill about 4 spots (2 per Day)

We also have an opportunity to host a “Learn to Solder” workshop if we can find extra volunteers to assist.  This is a great workshop and was received extremely well last year.  We would need roughly 2-3 People for this event per day to host and assist patrons.

The event is Saturday 10am-6pm (Sep 14th) and Sunday 10am-5pm (Sept 15th).

Volunteers will be reimbursed a per diem, up to $20 per day of volunteering, to cover parking and lunch expenses.  Please remember to keep your receipts!

Please email me ( hepatus AT gmail DOT com ) with what you can contribute with and/or for, and the final list will be compiled on Saturday Sep 7th.

Thanks everyone,

Mark Martens
