Our January 27th general meeting is this week, at 7 PM. I hope to see you all there!
Topics of discussion include our finances, Makerspace inprovements such as the soldering station, community interaction, and general feedback from our members – not to mention anything important that is brought up from you guys!
On Monday, January 26th at 6PM, Shaw Go! Island will be on location at the makerspace to shine a spotlight on our members, our projects, and our community! We’re looking for any interested makers to have their projects set up, ready to show off, or even just to be there and talk a little about the makerspace or themselves.
We are back at it again starting this week! Wednesday January 14th BC Robotics will be hosting the first Arduino night of 2015. Officially we start at 7:00 PM and as always there will be a selection of parts and accessories available for purchase from BC Robotics starting at 6:00 PM.
BC Robotics will be hosting another Arduino Night here at the makerspace this evening. There will be a slight change to the format of Arduino night as it is going to be more oriented to working on your own projects with access to help on hand (As discussed at our last meeting). We suggest showing up around 7:00 PM.
As usual they will have a bunch of goodies on hand from 6:30 onwards if you feel like browsing some Arduino products in person.
Raspberry Jam – come and see what you can do with a Raspberry Pi computer
A Raspberry Jam is
your chance to find out about the Raspberry Pi computer*
your chance to share what you’ve been doing with a Pi
a chance to find out what other enthusiasts have been doing with Pi’s
Come to MakerSpace Nanaimo on Sunday 7th December at 2pm to join in the fun. There will be demos, discussions, explanations, a variety of Pi’s set up to try out and add-on boards that let you do, well, pretty much anything you can imagine.
Attendance is free; kids are welcome but must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
* Not familiar with the Raspberry Pi? Take a look at RaspberryPi.Org and learn about this amazing little machine. It’s powerful, flexible, cheap and the coolest thing to happen to computers in ages.
BC Robotics will be hosting another Arduino Night here at the makerspace this coming Wednesday November 19th. The Arduino night seminar is loosely based on the guide found within the Arduino Starter Kit. It is recommend that you have the kit, but it is not necessary to participate. We suggest showing up around 7:00 PM to get set up as the seminar will be starting at 7:30 PM sharp!
As usual they will have a bunch of goodies on hand from 6:30 – 7:30 PM if you feel like browsing some Arduino products in person.
Literacy Central VI runs a computer donation program that helps supply families in need with computer systems, everything from the power cables to the mouse. We’re happy to be able to contribute, donating 10 LCD monitors for the cause!
Literacy Central VI does a great service to Nanaimoites, and we are proud of what they do. Keep on keepin’ on!
