Hey all, Join us for 2 (two!) donate-what-you-want learn-how-to-do-your-own-oil-change workshops. Both at NOON, on Saturday Oct. 20th, and Oct. 27th, [Jared] will be changing the oil in a 2012 Prius on the 20th, and a 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan on the 27th.

This short series of "workshops" will be as hands-on as you would like it to be (i.e., if you just want to watch, that's fine, or if you want to lay on the ground up under the car and get your hands dirty that's fine too.) and will have all of the necessary supplies provided. You will leave this event with knowledge about how to perform a simple oil change in a car.

What to bring – Clothes that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty, closed toed shoes.
You do not need to be a member of LVL1 to attend this workshop. In fact, visitors are encouraged! If it is your first visit to our space, you will need to sign our waiver of liability. (This is standard procedure for all LVL1 activities.)

N.B. A big shout-out to [William] who ran this workshop earlier this year and taught me how to perform an oil change.

LVL1 will be out in the community the weekend of September 15-16!

Throughout the weekend FirstBuild is running a Hack the Home Hackathon, Starting at 8:00 AM on Saturday and running through the end of the day Sunday. LVL1 will have at least one team of makers competing in this hackathon.

On the 16th, from 11 - 7, join us as we exhibit many community projects at the Pop-up Faire that Maker Faire is running this year. the Pop-up is in the FirstBuild parking lot, during the second day of the Hackathon.

As is a LVL1 Tradition, we'll also be running the annual "Oh Sh!t MakerFaire is next week Hackathon!" the weekend before the Pop-up Faire and Firstbuild Hackathon. The theme of this year's "Oh Sh!t Hackathon" is "Stupid Sh!t No One Needs", and it will run from Friday Sept. 7th @ 8PM until Saturday the 8th @ 8PM.

Come on out for two consecutive weekends of non-stop making, and as always, Hack on!

When - Saturday, July 21st @ 2:00-3:00 PM
What - If you've ever wished you could work on your own car, but cant risk damaging your only means of transportation, this is the class for YOU.  Watch and help as I demonstrate a standard oil change, walking you through the job, basic tools you'll need, as well as safety equipment and common problems you may run into.
Expect to take an important baby step into a skill-set that we save/make you thousands of dollars, hours of lost time, and untold amounts of anxiety.
What to bring - Clothes that you don't mind getting a bit dirty, closed toed shoes.
