Meeting Notes

Next month has a lot of events; we need to get codeshield kits together, and build the codeshield grande. There will be a codeshield packing party coming up soon.

Richard is the improviser-in-chief at the university and associated with the jazz festival. Steve Mason and Eva have been volunteered as point people to try and break down our brainstorming ideas into something implementable. He likes the theramin ensemble idea. He also likes the idea of getting started on a smaller scale and demoing the same project at the Waterloo Mini-Maker Faire. Matt proposed a singing saw type machine.
