Ideas for Future Classes

  • How to make laser cut / etched parts
    • We could give an intro to Inkscape &/or Corel Draw & then burn them out. This assumes that we have access to a laser machine though.
  • Introduction to Soldering
    • I know a lot of people coming into this are completely on the software side and/or would like a refresher. They could even leave with something they built. (Promotion w/ SparkFun, et al. possible?)
  • Introduction to Welding
    • I know nothing about welding but I'd love to learn --Finsprings 02:35, 4 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Introduction to Using an Oscilloscope
    • I've never used one, but I've always wanted to. It could really be useful for everyone to know how they work.
  • Woodworking: Build your own Tiki Torch
    • Learn basic woodworking skills while building something you can take home and light on fire.
