Welcomed Makers.

Awesome group of makers from  Educator, Doctor, Artist, Programmer, 3D Modeler, Inventor, Seniors 

Topics of conversation:

  • 3D Printing available during Library hours at the Teamwork Room.
  • Projects  ( ON GOING )
    • Central Texas Maker collaborative project will be  “Rube Goldberg” type machine which will be displayed at the CCPL for the community to see and learn what cool things are happening at the library.Initially the group decided to have multiple parts that come together to make this project.  This allows each member to participate.
      • To participate you’ll need to do the following:
        • Draw your mini Rube Goldberg project idea
        • List the materials needed to make this happen.
        • Submit a photo of it to evelyn.nelson (at)
          • Evelyn will create a page showing your drawing and material list.  Use the comment section for discussion.
          • On the next Central Texas Maker Club meeting we’ll bring all ideas and start the process of making this project.
      • UPDATE on member participation:
  • Saturday Seekers
    • This program has brought together a number of makers. We’ve worked on individual projects, brainstormed new ideas, and helped each other learn new skills.  We won’t be having as many of these weekends in May — since we’ll be planning future projects. Here is the upcoming schedule:
      • Evelyn will be available on the 4th, 11th & 25 of June, 2016
      • No Saturday Seekers on the 18 of June, 2016
  • Show & Tell
      • 3D printed astronomy of earth sky on globes.  
      • Microcontroller Project   
      • An Arduino Nano controller for controlling servos, display, and IR remote as part of an Automated Microscope project learn more here.

Next club meeting will be Wednesday, July 13th, 2016, at 6pm at the Copperas Cove Public Library.

Bring your project for the Show & Tell segment.


Central Texas Makers organizers will be taking a break since the member participation has dropped due to summer fun (activities, vacation trips and what not).   Organizers will be taking off the month of July and August, therefore,  NO Saturday Seekers. We will continue to have Monthly Meeting and maybe a Social or two.

Happy Making Fellow Makers.
