This is probably my erroneous impression, but it seems like there are very few (active) COG members with young children.
I have two children, a six-year-old and a three-year-old. My six-year-old is just about at the age to get started with certain kinds of projects -- he loves Minecraft, Scratch, and EL wire.
I know I'd use the space more if I either didn't have kids, or my kids were of an age to be full-fledged members themselves. But I don't want to wait a decade before I can do anything.
Might there be any interest in a parents' group among the COG membership?
I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for here. Basically, I'd like to use the space more. I'd like to have some activities available -- be it science experiments, art projects, etc. -- that kids can do in the space. While I might not want to take on large-scale welding projects while I have kids there, I would think some kinds of projects would be appropriate for kids to help with.
Maybe I'm the only one here in this particular demographic. If so, ok, fair enough -- but even if I am, that means there's an entire demographic segment we're missing out on in membership recruiting.
My apologies if this overlaps with the THINQubator's efforts. All I've seen so far with regard to the THINQubator was the initial Kickstarter, which seemed to focus on hosting organized kids' camps and standalone events.
