  • Announcements/new business:
  • Operations:
    • Larger Area Space Reorganization
      • Reallocate the space of the classroom by the doors, e.g. moving 3d printers in there. Obviously will sacrifice a bit of space in the classroom, possibly disrupt some classes (although this space is not well-utilized, so not a strong argument against it). Rapid prototyping area could become another general workspace, e.g. for co-working reasons, a little more privacy than the common room, etc. (there is sunlight!).
      • Organizing Bins are being used to sort the craft stuff for now, but the idea is to extend this scheme to the rest of the space in some way.
        • Need to figure out what stuff is just not useful for us and give it a good home.
        • Could use help -- gather up things of similar types and put them in a bin, and label the bin.
    • Donate a table for the common hallway area? Would be nice to have a place to set things down
    • Space Improvement Day - 9/25 @ 2-6pm
  • Membership:
    • Gained two members
    • Volunteering update
      • Had to shut down Open Hours because there was inconsistency in availability on Saturdays, and sometimes communication didn't happen when we were not able to open on time.
      • Nate made a survey to see if there are better times that might work to hold open hours so we can get more people in the rotation.
