Dates: October 5th & 6th, 2013 Time: 11am- 4pm each day Location: Lightbox Kulturhaus, 2027 NE MLK Blvd, Portland (enter through glass doors, behind Tiny's Coffee) Cost: $111 Spaces are limited so register soon!

We will draw from physical theater, butoh, clown, modern dance, and myth. We will cultivate presence, awareness and potency in both our performances and in our lives. We will inspire ourselves to walk our edges, push our limits, and dive deep within ourselves. Through this work we hope to connect with other creative people who can laugh together, work together, and collaborate on future initiatives based upon the foundation we build in these sessions. Jacob is an actor, dancer, clown and stilt performer. He has studied with Lume Theater in Brazil, Smascherati clown theater in Italy, Yumiko Yoshioka of butoh dance company Ten Pen CHii. Jacob has also trained and performed with the International Theater Collective, Berlin- based Grotest Maru, and the Carpet Bag Brigade stilt theater company.

3D Modeling and Printing Workshop Series
Uncorked Studios

Sign up now, this event has a very limited number of spots! Registration for this event includes all three workshop sessions. You can register for the event via Eventbrite.

Come to ChickTech’s 3D Printing workshop to get the skills you need to start making 3D models on your own! For three Tuesday evenings in a row, you will be led by an experienced design instructor and focus on building a basic skill set for 3D printing design. Best of all, you'll get to print each session’s project in one of five plastic colors to keep!

Technology that will be used: Autodesk Fusion360 and 3D Printers

The Instructor: 3D printing designer Mazuir Ross (Maz) Maz sculpted the 3D printed cow Veronin for Urban Farmer PDX! To learn more about the designer check out her website at mazuirross.com. She is also in partnership with Attero, who focuses on the hardware side of 3D printing. You can find information about Maz and Attero’s operation at mazandattero.xyz.

Session 1, August 25th: Make a Custom Charm The first session will overview the basics needed for successfully designing 3D printing output, particularly FFF/FDM printing. In the lesson we will create a snap-on custom charm for beer bottles/wine glasses. The creation of the snap-on charm will focus on basics of sketching and creating geometry from sketches. You'll be able to put a word or name on the charm, or even make flowers and/or geometric shapes!

Session 2, September 1st: Make a Trinket Box The second session is about modeling a trinket box with a lid. The session will focus on the combining/subtracting and/or intersecting of geometry for modeling. We'll also focus on the concept of fitting tolerances needed for CAM/CNC fabrication, particularly 3D printing.

Session 3 September 8th: Make a Six-Panel Hinged Cube with Custom Panel Design In the third session, you'll model a 6-panel hinged cube, including learning how to create fitted hinges. You'll also get creative with the custom designs on each panel. This folding cube can be designed with a sports team logo, a company name, anything you want. It can also be made into a desk trinket to hold pencils/pens/stylus just by cutting out a hole on the top panel.


By the end of this workshop series you'll have a comprehensive understanding of 3D printing, 3D modeling software, and 3D design.

Part of ChickTech’s mission is to retain women in technology. We intend for this event to build community and add skills to resumes. We encourage anyone who has always wanted to get started with 3D Printing to register for this event!

Dates: Aug 25, Sept 1, Sept 8 Time: 5:45pm-8pm (Doors open at 5:30pm and close at 8:30pm, we encourage you to come early and stay late!)

Location:

Uncorked Studios 1001 SE Water Ave #350 Portland, OR 97214

Registration pays for dinner for all three evenings, along with the class costs. Any amount left over supports ChickTech: High School.

A big thank you to our sponsor and event location provider, Uncorked Studios!

ChickTech: Career events are open to all genders with a focus on women.

Looking forward to seeing you! Get ready for some great times.

Python Pandas and Numpy. If you want to learn how to build a machine learning algorithm check us out next Saturday at 1 pm in the Hillsboro Brookwood Library. We be using the Kaggle dataset to build our code.

Do you want to learn Python and Machine Learning? Check out our group. We're getting started with the Titanic competition. Find out you can solve a real world Kaggle Titanic problem with Python and Machine Learning.

At the end of the session, we'll brainstorm a new hot topic for the following week presentation. The winning idea will get the innovator of the week.

Join the fun!

Here's our agenda

We've located at the Hillsboro Public Library. We'll be meeting in Conference room A, on the second floor.

We had several new college students join us last week. We had a new idea to help college students with open data. Bring your college problems and we can help brainstorm how to help.

Did you know the top skill people want to learn is a language? How about a programming language like Python? Python is very powerful in Machine Learning. Check out our group on Saturday's at 1 PM.

We're working together to solve the Kaggle Titanic competition. Find out how you can learn Python and Machine Learning very easily and quickly.

At the end of the session, you'll get an opportunity to brainstorm and present new topic ideas for the following week. Did you know you learn exponentially more when you prepare a topic vs attending as a learner? The winning idea will get the innovator of the week.

Join the fun!
