3D Printer Club: Recruiting Help at the Hackerspace

Special Content: Repraps for Education

This is part of a series of posts about starting and facilitating a project-based 3D printer club at a local elementary school, with the ultimate goal of replicating the program at schools everywhere. We'll be posting as many details as possible, including lesson plans and supporting materials. For more information about the entire project, including a listing of posts related to it, please visit the 3D Printer Club for Schools project page. 

I’ve been attending open meetings at Splat Space, our local hackerspace, for over a year now. They’re familiar with our school build project, but I wanted to remind them that I wanted to bring in some outside help and presenters as well.

At the open meeting, I got up and explained the project again, and asked members to come talk to me if they had any interest in helping, or if they were willing to make a short presentation to the kids on something interesting that they’re making. I got a couple of people to take me up on the offer, and I arranged for each of them to visit the club during a meeting.
