Open Mike & Group Discussion

We’ve missed a whole month due to the crazy North Carolina weather; it’s time to get together. Paul MacDougal has asked for discussion about the following:

There are at least three upcoming events at which TriEmbed may want to be represented.

RARSFest  – Saturday April 15, 2017

We have reserved a table or two for the past few years.  Our little corner of the show floor has taken on a “mini maker faire” vibe.

Maker Faire Burlington – Saturday April 22, 2017

Several of us have attended this maker faire in the past.

Spring ’17 Wake Tech Maker Faire – Saturday May 6, 2017

This is a new event.  I am not sure what kind of turnout it will generate.
They are trying to present a “college themed” event, showcasing what can be done at local community colleges and so forth.

If we want to be present as exhibitors at any of these, we need to figure that out soon and make plans. We would need volunteers to man the tables and to provide stuff to show/do.  So, check your calendars and come prepared to discuss and volunteer.

We also need to think about what we want to do the rest of the year.  Do we want to grow?  Do we need to showcase/provide beginner content so that newcomers return?  Does anyone have ideas on what kinds of presentations would be interesting and someone that can present?

 The room below will be the meeting place through April (and we expect confirmation for May closer to exam time).

Engineering Building I Room 1005, NCSU Centennial Campus, 911 Partners Way, Raleigh, NC, 27606

TriEmbedEBI-RM1005

NOTE: NCSU dictates the meeting place and it will change from time to time so always check this page before you jump into your car.

These meetings are coordinated by Paul MacDougal and Pete Soper, and Brian Grawburg.

The NCSU representative is Mahesh Balasubramaniam. Bring your projects, but keep food and beverages in the lobby/snack area of the building. Under 18s need a parent or guardian.
