BARN will remain closed to members and the public until Kitsap County is approved for Phase 3 of the state's Safe Start plan. The calendar will be updated once we can safely reopen.
This meeting is generally held the fourth Sunday of each month. Sometimes this is adjusted to accommodate holidays and too many steering committee members not being available. Be sure to check the calendar for updates.
**This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.**
This is a joint BARN and Battle Point Astronomical Association (BPAA) class. In this four session class students will get an overview of “What’s out there” and “How do we know”. The class format will be some general comments followed by one or more ‘curated' video's followed by discussion.
Instructor: Peter Moseley
**This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.**
Get introduced to 3D printing in this one and a half hour session. You'll get to see BARN's printers and gain an understanding of how they work and what they can make.
You will see a computer file get readied for printing in a process called "slicing."
You'll see the different printers we have and learn about filament, the material 3D printers use to make prints. We'll start a print and you'll see the printer print.
3D printing has many uses, ranging from practical to fun, such as replacement parts, mold-making, medical models used in surgery, prototypes and more.
Bring your curiosity and questions. You can continue to use the 3D printers at Open Studio where a studio monitor or other member can help you.
**This is the Online version of Open Studio**
Check out what's going on, talk shop and hang out via Zoom.
A trained monitor is present. Open Studio is, however, not like a class where instruction can be given.

In this relaxed 90-minute Zoom class we will look at how teaching a craft topic can be designed for the online learning experience. With the help of curated video, guided discussions, checklists, worksheets, and demos, each participant will learn to take their own topic and develop it into a single class (for future expansion into a complete course of study) that will be applicable to the needs of the online learning environment.

You'll get to see the 3D printers, laser cutter, soldering station, hand tools and more. Overall BARN policies as well as studio-specific ones will also be covered.
Participants will also learn about the leadership structure within ETA and about opportunities to participate in helping everything run smoothly. Volunteer jobs range range from serving as studio monitors to helping with studio maintenance.
This is a joint BARN and Battle Point Astronomical Association (BPAA) class. In this four session class students will learn the parts and function of telescopes, and how to use them to observe celestial objects. Class format will be interactive and will include demonstration and commentary by the instructor with ample opportunity for participants to ask questions; curated videos demonstrating important concepts and techniques; and discussion. Participants who have telescopes are encouraged to have them on hand during class and share them on-screen via Zoom screen sharing.
Familiarity with telescopes and astronomy is NOT required; beginners are welcome!
Class Duration: 4 Sessions of 1.5 hours each: Wednesdays, September 9, 16, 23, 30, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Instructor: Frank Petrie, Board President of Battle Point Astronomical Association
Class size is limited to 6.
The class covers how to prep a design for cutting and engraving on the laser cutter as well as the set-up, settings and operation of the laser cutter.
Optional: Bring a laptop with Inkscape installed. It is the free design software we use with the laser cutter. Click here to go to Inkscape.org where you can download it. There are versions for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. This is not strictly necessary, but will help you get the most out of this class.
Successful completion of this workshop is the first step toward becoming qualified for independent operation of the laser cutter. It also prepares you for more advanced laser cutting classes.
Class size is limited to 4.
