Innovative minds are always coming up with million dollar ideas, but how many millionaires are actually out there? We're willing to bet there's a millionaire inside of YOU somewhere, deep down.
This Dabble class is all about selling your ideas with minimal investments of time and money. First we'll cover inexpensive yet effective ways to patent your inventions. We'll discuss how to keep everything private, along with ways to quickly search if your idea is truly original. Then we'll walk through checkpoints to determine if your idea is marketable, today, and where. We'll learn the various methods and corresponding benefits of selling your ideas to fit your lifestyle. Lastly, instruction will cover manufacturing in China and beyond.
Students will have the opportunity for free consultation and product valuations from the instructor. Walk away inspired to get your invention out there, and even with contacts who can help protect, manufacture, ship, fund and buy your inventions!
What to Bring
-A ruler, a pen and paper for notes (Laptop optional).

Full Fontal Pϋppetry: Summer Sell-Out (June 8-9, 15-16 and July 13-14, 19-20) brings the live action puppet comedy-variety show by Angry Young Men, Ltd., that wacky local troupe of theatre geeks, artisans, mad scientists, and drinkin’ buddies to Soulstice Theatre, 3770 S Pennsylvania Ave in St Francis.
This is the latest round of Full Frontal Pϋppetry, named for their performance style; one part Japanese Bunraku, One part Vaudeville, and one part Splatter Film. The puppeteers appear as shadows behind the characters, and their show is a combination of sketch comedy, musical numbers, political humor, new video material, and fractured poetry. They have been described by the Shepherd Express as “The sort of inspired goofiness that makes Theatre worth going to”, and by author (and living legend) Harlan Ellison as “Enormously witty and engaging”.
This round’s guest host will be Alice Wilson, local performer and founder of the local Silent-film comedy troupe, the M.U.T.E.S. Many familiar puppet characters will be returning, such as the Director Puppet Murray Gauntman, Lumpy the Golem Boy, Joon the Ogre, the inventor Blondie, and musical masochist Sweepea. Alternatively irreverent, rowdy, dark, and sweet, Full Frontal Pϋppetry – Summer Sell-Out should prove to be a theatre experience unlike anything else in Milwaukee.
Formed in 2007 on a dare, Angry Young Men, Ltd. (Who, in their own words, are not particularly angry, not getting any younger, and have several women in the cast) Are best known for Night of the Living Dead – the Puppet Show, and have been performing locally and regionally from night clubs to horror conventions to large theaters, including their annual Halloween blowout at the Oriental Theatre. Troupe members have performed with many local and regional theatre companies, including Soulstice Theatre, Milwaukee Public Theatre, First Stage, Skylight Opera Theatre, and the Bristol Renaissance Faire. Bringing to the stage their vast experience and varied personalities, AYM Ltd offer an absurd, light-hearted, but razor-sharp take on puppetry and comedy that is unexpected, unpredictable, and certainly unique.
Kid-friendly (but not necessarily kid-safe) the show is rated PG-13, for Puppet Gore and an adolescent sense of humor.
The Milwaukee Community Circus is about having fun, developing talent, and teaching the mystique arts of the circus performer.

MCC students improve their coordination, balance, strength, conditioning and overall fitness in an exciting, fun, and positive manner.
The organizers of Build Health have received this E-mail from the Department of Health and Human Services.
Greetings from Washington, I'm Bill Corr, Deputy Secretary for the Department of Health and Human Services. Secretary Sebelius and I are incredibly excited about the ideas and energy you are bringing this weekend to the Build Health developer code-a-thon challenge. Using health data to create new tools to understand health and health care in America has never been more important. And, your work is key to helping us all make better and healthier choices in our lives.
The innovative spirit of this event is symbolic of the many creative ways we can address our most critical problems in health care. We understand the importance of testing new ideas, challenging paradigms, and creating new designs for all aspects of health care. Your event is a starting point for the many breakthroughs we think will come from American innovators in health care.
And, we hope to meet many of you in Washington this summer to celebrate the best of our national innovation efforts at the Health Data Initiative Forum. We wish you and your teams well and thank the organizers in your community for making this a priority.
We at Bucketworks and Build Health are thankful and pleased that the DHHS is taking notice of our modest event. Hack-a-thons like Build Health are a great opportunity for hackers, coders, designers and other rock stars to make some serious change in the world. We hope to see you all there!
Come enjoy an evening of artwork, music, food/drinks, and good company.
Attendees will have the opportunity to hear first hand from our teen art interns as they showcase their artwork from the 2012 spring internship program. Original artwork and reproductions will be available for purchase.
Featuring entertainment and a performance by Vic and Gab.
Join us at Bucketworks for a weekend Hack-a-Thon for healthcare!
For 28 hours, from April 14-15, experts from the health care field will collaborate with hackers to solve relevant health care problems. Local health care experts will present contemporary health care challenges. Additionally, participants may present a health care challenge or solution. Participants will self-assemble around the problem or proposed solution they find most interesting and creatively problem solve, creating a working proof of concept to present to the judges. Solutions need not be software; they can be other instruments of social change.
Food, internet, and plenty of rest and work areas will be provided along with fabulous prizes!
