Seriously?  Are we a distributor for headsets?  I didn't know we had a deal.  I consider this A Good Thing.

I think we can do that. Here's a conservative example:
40 keychains at $5 = $2004 classes with kits, 10 students each, profit of $10 = $400
We can also sell EEG headsets!

"Commercial Makers 
	
	: Individuals who would like to sell products along with demonstrating 
what they make at their Maker exhibit. Please submit a Maker application
 and indicate that you are a Commercial Maker. There is a fee of $250 
for a standard set-up (fee due September 7th). Please note, companies
 or commercial entities do not qualify as Commercial Makers. If you are a
 company or commercial entity, we have great opportunities 
available—please see 
	
		Sponsors. "

So if we want to sell anything in any manner we need to expect to make $250 back to break even.  If we go into 3D CAD initial keychains or the like for $5 a pop, we better sell at least 60 of them to make up costs plus materials.

I believe there is also discussion about Tug O Brain (I love the stepper motor/rope version by the way.  Love.).

Any thoughts on soldering projects that kids can do quickly and take something away, or something interactive involving letting people code? Or making their own 3D prints? Sparkfun's booth had a big line of people waiting to put together kits last time, and they were charging for them.
