The Modular Rhythm Machine was conceived, designed and built as a vehicle to explore rhythm and percussion in different cultural contexts. It is a tool to search for questions about the meaning and forces behind rhythmic patterns, synchronicity, syncopation, and chaos.  Each participant will finish the 4-session workshop with a fully functioning self-playing drum module and with a precise idea and necessary files to produce more in the future, if interested.

Get certified to use the TORMACH Personal CNC for metal machining.

Saturday February 16 + 23, 2-6pm

REGISTER HERE

This workshop is for anyone that has completed the Shopbot class and wants to machine small metal parts.  We will cover basic machine operation and safety. The system accepts files for both 2D and 3D models. Additionally, basic machining functions are included within the PathPilot R Interface software. These functions use a Conversational screen to generate the G-Code, which then runs the machine. Typical functions include Face, Profile, Pocket, Drill/Tap, Thread Mill, and Engrave. The machine is capable of milling materials such as circuit boards, aluminum, steel, and iron.  The table travel capacity is X-18”, Y-9.5”, Z-16.25”.  Our machine is the TORMACH Personal CNC, Model PCNC 1100. It uses a spray coolant system to maintain temperature and remove material.

Build a microscope and take it home!

REGISTER HERE

At our DIY Community Microscope workshop, we’ll guide participants through building their own microscope with affordable materials: cardboard, bolts, webcams, and tape. It takes only 15-30 minutes to build, and plugs into a smartphone or laptop. We’ll look at water and plant samples from nearby sites, and talk about ways that using DIY science tools can lead to meaningful discovery.

Public Lab is an open community of activists, tinkerers, organizers, makers, educators and scientists around the world, who have worked together to design this kit. We’ve worked with a growing coalition to take a Do-It-Yourself approach to environmental justice issues.
