I can lead an Arduino For Total Newbies workshop.  50 people max.  A weekend afternoon would be best, so people of all ages can attend.  2 hours setup, 3.5 hours of workshop, 60 minutes for stragglers, 90 minutes for cleanup.  1:00pm workshop start time would be perfect, meaning the large area in the West would be needed from 11:00am through 7:00pm.

Cost for participants: 
Instruction: free
Materials cost: $35 (plus optional $20 communications cable -- provided for free for use during the workshop)

Simpler version:

If you can teach a class on ANYTHING, and you can do it between August 9th to 15th, please contact Jeffrey:

jeffreyatw at gmail.com 

We'd love to have a huge variety of classes for this week-long event.

Suggestions / Examples:

* programming
* lockpicking
* circuit bending

* cross-stitch / needlepoint
* wearable electronics
* kombucha making
* radio broadcasting
* streaming audio/video
* ...?

Contact Jeffrey, let him know your availability, and he'll get you on the schedule.

Doing this class-blitz will go a long way towards introducing many different people the way we've upgraded the space, and of course encourage a few donations along the way.  :)

Come teach at Noisebridge! Help make Noisebridge a place where people will want to come and learn about all things related to hacking.

For the week of August 9 to 15, we're looking for people to teach as many one-off classes as possible, in addition to the regularly scheduled recurring classes. Filling Noisebridge up with classes for a week will send the message that it's a place where everyone is free to come and teach what they know, and learn as much as they can. It should also help with the fundraising effort toward the Reboot:


Have a specific skill that you're good at or known for? Think others would benefit from it? Take an hour or two of your time to teach others.

Run a woodshop class in the shop. Teach how to sew with the sewing machines. Run a photography class and use the darkroom. Here's a full list of Noisebridge's resources: https://noisebridge.net/wiki/Resources - use them to their full potential!

We're especially looking for all-ages or kid-friendly classes to be taught on the weekend.

I'm in charge of finding people to teach classes and help schedule them. Contact me, or noisebridge-discuss at lists.noisebridge.net, with any questions related to the Class-A-Thon.

To teach a class, all you have to do is put it on the Upcoming or Recurring Events list and email noisebridge-announce at lists.noisebridge.net.
