Here is one of the new designs for the Drop Innvaders Game competition to design new items for the online game
Wip Boss Alien
This is another design. Very interesting idea to introduce aliens to the game. Think the idea with this new enemy would be that they emerge from a planet and you have to blow the planet up to stop the aliens coming out and attacking you.

This project will involve some of our Young people and we are hoping to make it an intergenerational project and involve some of the older members of the community through Linking Lives.
The idea being the Young people will clean it up and document the Clean up and the Older Members of the Community can help out by pointing out rubbish and maybe supply refreshments at certain check points, they can also tell stories and the history of the Coppice Brook, to illustrate the importance of keeping it clean.
This project is planned for some time in July, We will keep you all posted on the planning and updates.

Shookz and Jasper collaborated on a Drum and Bass track a few months ago and have given it to The Drop Inn. Then Shookz came up with the idea of running a remix competition and host it on our Soundcloud.
Soon we will be uploading the different elements to this track for people to download and remix, The best remix will get featured on the home page for thedropinn.org. There might even be more free music give aways for the winner.
We'll let you know when the track is up there ready to start remixing, it will be after the Bearded Theory Festival, so some time the end of May early June.

We tried some new toys out like MP3 encoded decks fed into the iMac.
It was an unusual 'Safe Rave' wasn't as busy as the others but it was still a good one.

It would be a lot of fun and also useful for communication between the local band scene. The student from Belper School who did the 3rd week of work experience enquired about the dormant project and was more than happy to take it on.

The Student we have this week is studying music technology, so we can again cater for the different need of the student so they get the most out of their work experience week.
We have already asked them back to help with the build-a-band project and the Bearded Theory Festival, which gave them unbelievable motivation. They work very hard all week and really organised our JamJar music space.
All three work experience weeks have been completely different, all a great success with the students getting a great work experience out of it.

There was a series of films screened and some interesting live performances by Adie and Jasper.
The work experience students from Belper School enticed people in, and did a very good job helping out through out the event.
