Please take a few minutes to review the proposed workshops from our members and express your interest. This will identify which workshops take priority in scheduling this Spring. If you want to teach a workshop not listed, have questions about our proposed workshops or want to volunteer materials, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you and Happy New Years!
Thank you for looking at our survey. Listed below are some things we are considering and the prices we have costed out. Our goal on these workshops is educational outreach and the lion’s share of the cost goes to cover materials and trainer costs.
Please review these and let us know if it is something you would be interested in. This survey is NOT a commitment, but merely a gauge of how much interest is in each subject to let us know if we have enough to schedule a workshop, and how many materials to pre-order.
Just a quick update to members and friends of ChattLab. We had some help this weekend getting some drywall started last week and through the weekend. The noisy transformer is slowly getting muted, which is a good thing. Extra special thanks to Mike, Rudy and Hollie that were all there to help me over several days. There’s no way I could have done this myself.
Also, we’re having another maker meeting this Tuesday, so if you have some projects you want to show off, please bring them. We’re hungry to see what others are working on over the holidays.
Come join our open meeting nights where we talk about ongoing projects, space improvements, upcoming workshops and generally socialize with other makers.
All are welcome, we don’t bite. We’re always accepting application for membership, but there’s no hard sell, we just like to talk about making.
We are located near the parking dock area on the ground floor at the BDC Building. You can park in the BDC parking lot AFTER 6pm without a permit. See the images below on how to locate us.
The official meeting begins at 8pm, which lasts about 20 minutes. We just talk about what’s going on, and what’s coming up. Afterwards, social hour commences. If you want to come early, doors will be open at 7pm. Tours are available before and after the meeting. Hope to see you there!
Chatt*Lab is a Chattanooga based makerspace that is owned and run by dues paying members that share a leased space with tools that help us make neat things, and to teach one another by example or by workshops.
We are currently seeking Chattanooga makers to join our ranks as charter/founding members. The deadline is either the end of November, or until we get up to 20 members. Any new member requests after that point will need to go through an approval process that the club has yet to determine.
Chattanooga Mini Maker Faire Saturday September 19th 2015. 10AM – 6PM
We will be running a “Microbattles” event with an Antweight and Beetleweight tournament in the morning session, and then a workshop and demonstration on combat robotics building and techniques in the afternoon session.
Recently at the lab we were looking at AA batteries and I brought up the bounce test to determine whether an alkaline battery is good or bad. I could not remember the details at the moment but this video explains in good detail.
TL;DR; Bad batteries bounce, good batteries bounce less.
We are proud to be involved with the upcoming Chattanooga Mini Maker Faire!
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (May 29, 2014) – As a growing number of Chattanoogans embrace the global maker movement, local organizers are working to expand the spirit behind it by launching the region’s first Mini Maker Faire.
