Covers March 2019 until February 2020

Task distribution and projects - we need a communication manager, making people aware what projects are running and making others aware of this. => display with projects currently running and planned

Coder dojo: at some times becomes very busy. More diverse activities (CTF, game of code, robotics). more info about their activities will be put on our mailing list

Science festival: theremin and laser harp will be made functional to be demoed for visitors

2 members joined, now 14 present

[edit] Receipts and Expenditures

Question is raised about high amount in account. We should do something about (with) it.

Discussion about how to get project ideas and how to get them realized. Create a project platform. Have dedicated meetups to present projects. "Pitch day" where members present their projects. With an award? Have this as a videoconference setup for those not able to join. This helps to solve the "no time" issue. Including recording the talk. Have mentors for projects. Have moderator for the "pitch day"

Also: invest in people, not in infrastructure. Via a prize or via sponsorship for participating in international events.

  • Discharge of treasurer (14/14)
  • Discharge of office (14/14)

Plans for 2020:

Robotics Lab (by make-it): idea to create a second robotics makerspace in cooperation with syn2cat at level2. This will be an addon on the courses that codeclub does in the robotics domain.

Cleaning and TYDYING/INVENTORY day. Take one room/shelf/box and check what is there. "discover your hackerspace day"
