As you may know, Hackforge runs on the awesome power of its volunteers. As chair of the volunteer group, it’s my job to let you know that there are some wonderful volunteer opportunities that might interest you:
SPORT AND HOBBY EXPO
Hackforge is going to have a presence at the Sport and Hobby Expo that will be held at the WFCU Centre May 30th to June 1st. Help us represent! If you are interested, contact phil @ hackf.org
DOING THE w.a.v.e
w.a.v.e.s. (Windsor’s Artists, Visions, Energies & Sculptures) is a new art festival taking place Sept. 26-27 along the river at the Windsor Sculpture Park. The two-day event showcases local artists’ works of art, culture and technology
Hackforge is putting forward an entry in w.a.v.e.s. that involves persistence of vision technology. It’s going involve doing an electronic build and if you’d like to be part of this project, let us know (doug at hackf.org).
Tech Talks are generally held in the space every other Thursday, and they are a great way to share what you know with a friendly audience that appreciates the technical struggles behind making things work. If you are interested in giving a Tech Talk, please contact Doug Satori (doug at hackf.org).
ROBOTS AT THE LIBRARY
The Forest Glade Branch of the Windsor Public Library has Mindstorm Robots. Hackforge has a VEX robotics kit that needs someone to make a help guide or document step-by-step a project, so those unfamiliar with robotics can try the set. Interested in helping out with such curriculum? Contact aaron at hackf.org
These are only suggestions for volunteer work. As we are a member-driven organization, the opportunity to start projects in our space and do amazing work with others is always there too!
