Bring your friends, bring your family, and enjoy the hackspace! It starts at 11am and goes on until 3pm. See you there!

Notice of Donation in Large Project Storage

During Hack the Space Day on 7 February, volunteers went through Large Project Storage to identify and mark any projects that had not been worked on for over three months.

Any project without a Do Not Hack sticker or with a date over three months ago were all issued with Notice of Donation stickers.

Projects currently labelled with Notice of Donation will be moved to the Donations Area on Sunday, 6 March.

You can see the full collection of projects in this gallery.

If you own any of these projects, please take appropriate action before Sunday, 6 March, whether that is continuing work on the project and adjusting the date or removing it from the space.

Please make certain that when you put a project into Large Project Storage, that you label it accordingly with a Do Not Hack sticker, add info to the storage sheet, and adjust the date when you do work on it.

Also, there was a large quantity of dried food on the shelves. Please do not store food on Large Project Storage.

Pick up soldering!

Suitable for all ages (but ideal for ages 7 and up) and all skill levels, you'll learn how to solder a battery, magnet, and LEDs onto a circuit board to create your very own flashing robot badge!
