Manchester is the European City of Science 2016 – recognition of its unique scientific heritage and contribution to scientific discovery, innovation, and industry.
Local groups and societies are being encouraged to get involved and as part of our contribution, we are planning a mega “Show & Tell” for our next Jam. The intention is to invite the Manchester community to the event so they can see what the “Maker Scene” looks like and hopefully encourage some of them to get involved.
There is more information on ECoS2016 here: http://manchestersciencecity.com with details of some of the fantastic events already arranged.
We are looking to you, our members, to help make this a reality by coming along and showing off your projects. They don’t have to be big and flashy just something you are proud of. In many cases, people relate best to the simple inventive things so these are going to be really important to the story.
All we need to know is:
- Names and Ages (twitter handles of you have one)
- What you are going to be showing. Just a couple of lines (or more) of description.
- How much space you need (if it’s more than about 1M of table)
- What bits of our Jam kit you need to borrow?
You can bring (or offer to bring) more than one thing that’s absolutely brilliant, but we will have to see how the space goes as we allocate it.
If you can respond with this information on an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org that would be fantastic – ideally before the 6th May. If you cannot make it for the whole Jam it doesn’t matter – just let us know what you can do.
We will keep everyone up to speed with plans once you have registered your interest by email.
Equally, if you don’t want to do a “Show & Tell” – don’t feel excluded, we are running a normal Jam (with the usual Pizza trimmings) in the area we normally use for workshops. Just make sure you sign up for a normal Jam ticket on Eventbrite once they’re available.
