Tinkercad is back and we're teaching a class on it!

For those of you who do not know, Tinkercad is this awesome web based 3D CAD program. It was slated to go offline later this year. However, Autodesk just bought it and it will remain online. Yeah!

It is by far the easiest to use 3D CAD program that we have encountered.  Additionally, you can export the file to a format that can be used on the Shop's 3D printers.

In this episode:
Susan interviews Nate Bryant, man of many talents. Nate is heavily involved with SYN Shop operations and culture. He's a board member, teacher and heads up the build out of the Danger Room! In this interview, he shows off his many projects and tells us what's next for the Danger Room at SYN Shop.

Krux, Sarah, Pawel and Susan made the trek to San Mateo Maker Faire a few weeks ago. A fun time was had by all! They share their favorite experiences, purchases, sights and maker 'celebrities'.

We love feedback, so please tell us what you liked, and what you think we could improve on for next time. If you have a maker in mind that we could interview for a future episode, suggest away! Click here for the feedback form.

Do you own a 3D printer or are just interested in 3D printing? Come and meet up with like-minded people, bring things to show off, and help brainstorm ideas for some new 3D printing initiatives in Las Vegas!

As part of the Science and Technology Festival's week long events we are doing a science crawl.

6-7 David Knight, the producer of the film "Endeavor Comes Home" (it's going to be shown in theaters before the new Star Trek movie), chronicling the final journey of the Space Shuttle Endeavor from FL to its permanent new home at the California Science Center, will give a talk at the Downtown Construction Zone.

7-8 Then we head over to SynShop to make, hack and play. I am bringing DIY Light Saber materials!

This is the follow up to building Light Sabers in the Shop for Science Crawl!

The Las Vegas Science and Technology Festival falls this year on May 4th, Star Wars Day.

I wanted to do something really special for kids who are visiting us this year.

We have the Storm Trooper Battalion coming to the show, and what better way to honor this great collision of nerdy goodness than a Light Saber Flash Mob at a Science Festival on Star Wars Day.
