In an effort to be more transparent about where we are going, we’ve had the participants from each of our initiatives take some time to think about what they need in order to strengthen how they are able to help the community. Below you will find our wish list. If you or someone you know has one of these items and would be willing to donate it, Tucson would really appreciate it and you will get a nice tax write-off!
- Presenters table - Today we are using a small coffee table for presenters. It would be great for presenters to have a nicer desk to present from.
- New projector – Our current projector works, but will be obsolete very soon.
PA System - Sometimes the AC in our building is a little loud and our speakers need some volume assistance. Microphone - This goes right along with the last item.
- Lapel Microphone - Similar here.
- Video source mixer - We would LOVE to get some multi-gangplank events going. To do this successfully we will need a video mixer for multiple sources.
- Green Screen - This will help our studios team with teaching video production skills to the Tucson community.
- Lights for art display - We have some incredible art pieces on display, but lighting isn’t optimal.
- Kinect 3d Scanner - We would love to combine this technology with the 3d printer below and teach the community how to use them to create the next world innovations.
- Solidworks workstation - One of the key components to being able to print 3d objects is to be able to model them. We’d like to start hosting a solidworks course and have a workstation setup so anyone can drop by and model whenever they would like!
- Arduino Kit - We hope to have a complete kit which will allow anyone from the community to come in and design something incredible with the kit we have on hand.
Maker Bot 3d Printer- We have one of these on the way from Gangplank HQ!
- Sonos System – The space is a little TOO quiet on some days. We need some music to fill the space!
- Refrigerator - We have a mini-fridge at this point, but with the number of people working from the space each day we will need a little extra storage for food.
- Webcams – To better incentivize / facilitate online interactions we look forward to setting up multiple web cams through the space so that you can see what’s going on LIVE!
- Pool Table - We like to keep the fun levels high!
Please help us find these items to increase Gangplank’s positive impact on Tucson!
