So, anyone else up for doing something on the weekend on this?
My thought is either procuring some soldering kits to resell (space
flags, tv-be-gone, simple circuits) or doing something computer based -
write a game in Scratch on a raspi 0. Maybe an hour's 3d printing crash
course with Uncle Ed, that kind of thing. Ideas?
There might be a little bit of money in it for us, or if not it's still
probably good for my Chartered Engineering stuff, as I'm a selfish
bastard and all that.
I might put a talk forward too, but I'd have to do some thinking on
what. Probably something about never stopping learning, and why it's
important in a modern technical workplace or some other. Maybe I'll just
do ballooning again, as people seemed to like that one!
I'm a little skittish about the insurance requirement, though - That's
the only bit I'll really need to research and work out more on.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly! Perfect, I'll keep in touch.
If you do decide to attend the Activity Weekend (3rd - 4th September) we
will need before 22nd January:
*Workshop name and text for the programme, (you can keep it fairly vague
and just give an outline of what the workshop is about).
*Age range for the workshop would be helpful
We will need the following from you by mid-May, but I'll drop you a
reminder email about it nearer the time.
*Technical Requirements: to let TechFest know of any requirements needed
by the presenter to facilitate their workshop.( tables, chairs, power

If you decide to take part in the Public Programme (5th September - 18th
Could you please provide me with an event title and an event
description/blurb that is 75 words or shorter to add to the programme. A
hi resolution logo, a picture to go alongside the text and an
approximate length of time the workshop/talk will last. That would be
fantastic, thank you.
Hope this clarifies things, if you need any further info please get in
