Rogue Valley Maker Faire

Members from Southern Oregon Skywatchers and Grants Pass Astronomers will have a table at the Rogue Valley Maker Faire, to be held Saturday Nov 19th from 10am to 5pm at ScienceWorks in Ashland. Depending on the weather, we hope to have some solar scopes for viewing, plus other materials. In addition, there will be a table for the 2107 Solar Eclipse Balloon Project, with students from North Medford High School. If the weather cooperates, we hope to launch a tethered balloon around Noon, with real time video broadcast from the balloon.

Finally, there will be tables from both the Astronomy and Maker Academies held at ScienceWorks during the summer, with students demonstrating their Academy Projects.

Of course, there are lots of other demonstrations and activities taking place. A ticket costs $10 for the day, and more information is available at
