Sorry!  I meant to say there will be 12 people in each group (total of 24)!

An Alert to the Community

On Sunday June 10th, the lab is hosting two sessions for engineering students and summer visitors.  The sessions are from 1:00 to 3:00PM and 3:00 to 5:00PM.  There will be about 24 people in each session so the lab will be full - if you have an urgent project try to come in on another open session or late in the afternoon.  

Community Sustainability Connections

The CUCFL was part of the Partnerships for a Thriving Champaign Urbana conference April 20 at the NCSA.  It was great to meet so many people who are working to create a more livable community.  I hope they make the Fab Lab a part of those efforts.  One example is the work of Christine Moore, who is working with the Prosperity Gardens project near the police station where the public market is open.  The lab might help by making a few wooden garden stakes and signs for the area.  Anyone have any great sayings for a garden that we can laser cut into a sign?  

Illinois State Science Fair Needs Judges

On May 5, 2012, the Illinois State Science Fair will take place at the Assembly Hall.  Judges are needed to review the over 1000 projects submitted by school children around the state.  No experience is necessary and training will be provided.  It looks like your commitment is 8:00AM to 12:00PM on the 5th.  If anyone is interested they should contact Bob coverdill of I-STEM  ( to volunteer.  Sounds like it might be fun!  you can see the science projects from 12:00 to 2:00PM as a visitor.
