I want to build a “go box” for LMN when we do events. Right now when going to an event we kind of scramble to grab a bunch of cool stuff, throw it in a bin and leave in a hurry. I’d like to make this process easy for anyone without the scramble part.
I’m thinking about having lots of goodies in it, and I need some help populating it with all of the things we would like to put on display when we go to an event such as a science fair etc.
I’m thinking of a toolbox on wheels, or maybe even two, and inside these boxes will be everything needed to setup a very professional looking table at an event.
I’d like to get an LMN table cloth printed, so we start with a nice looking table. I think there is another effort to get a roll up sign, which should probably live in this kit.
Inside the box would be fliers, business cards, thingamajigs and dodads that people have made. Maybe some hands on stuff like homopolar motors etc.
Does anyone have any good ideas for items in this “go box”?
I’m thinking of a toolbox similar to this:
And another box similar to this:
Between a couple boxes like this I’d love to have signage, high quality examples of things people have made that will live and stay in these boxes so the are ready to go. (dust free, and really wow people when they look at the creations) Many of the things we grab now are pretty beat up, I would assume making these boxes designed for keeping these items in pristine condition.
So what I need from other people:
- Ideas! (That should be easy)
- Some high quality donated items that you’ve made that will live in these go boxes that you’d love to show off.
- Help with fliers / handouts / business cards etc that will also live in these boxes or be easy to print off before an event.
- More ideas for making setup and tear down a quick easy painless process so that any member who wants to volunteer to run a booth has no barriers.
