    Making a film isn’t as hard as you think! Many people assume that filmmaking requires fancy equipment and expensive software, but for this class all you need is a phone with a camera and a computer (preferred), iPad, or iPhone that can run iMovie (a free editing software). No experience necessary.

    During this class, you will create a short film of 2-5 minutes. Starting at the very basics of what makes a good story, we will work our way through screenwriting, shooting, and editing. At the end, if time allows, there will also be a wrap party where you show off all your hard work! After taking this class, in addition to producing a short film, you will come away with the knowledge and materials to continue creating short films on your own, whenever you want.

    Details:

    • You must have an iPhone or iPad for this class.
    • To register your youth, please enter their name in the Youth's Name fieldBe sure to put in the parent/guardian email address for "registrants email". All reminders and important information will go to the email address you register with.

    DIY e-Bike SIG
    There are lots of acronyms in that title, so let’s break it down, starting at the end.
    SIG: Special Interest Group. Basically, that’s a fancy name for a club.
    e-Bike: electric bike. I.e., a bike with both pedals and a small battery-powered motor.
    DIY: Do It Yourself.

    So if you’re interested in making your own e-bike, either from a kit or from scratch, tune in! Perhaps you have an e-bike and want to experiment with some DIY tweaking? You’re also welcome! Or if you’re simply curious, we won’t turn you away either – come take a peek. We’ll meet once a month online, and we might get together once in a while to check out the bikes (and projects) in person. After a short talk, we’ll take questions, problem-solve, and show off our projects.

    Possible topics (subject to change):
    September: Building an e-bike from a kit
    October: Fixing a dead e-bike and turning it into a dual-motor monster
    November: Batteries. Power vs range. Buy vs build. Charging and discharging.
    December: Who needs two wheels? Let’s talk about one-wheel.
