You do not need to be a member to attend these events or use our equipment to make cool things. (But there must be a member present for you to work in the space.) The Tuesday night Open Meeting (at 8:00pm every Tuesday) in particular is geared to visitors and always includes a tour of the space and a "Show & Tell" session during which we share info about the projects in progress. Anyone entering LVL1 for the first time must sign a waiver of liability. (There's a kiosk right inside the door.)
Are you looking for help/training and don't see what you need on the calendar? Feel free to ask us at any open meeting or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll assist you.
Do you want to teach a class, host a hackathon, or get together with others for some other specific purpose? Check out our Hosting Guide.
Come join us and make an awesome holiday wreath that has WIFI enabled computer/smartphone controlled LED lights! You will use an ESP8266 circuit board connected to a led strip of lights. Plus you can decorate your wreath to make it beautiful. Check out the WLED NeoPixel software to see how you control the lights! Trust us, this is some really cool stuff! 1 ticket is for 1 wreath with LEDs.
This Sunday, October 27th, from 11:30 until 1:30, join Ned at the space as they laser-engrave a pumpkin for Halloween. Ned will cover both the hardware and software setup for this engrave, and be around to answer questions as it's running, so you can know how to laser engrave yourself in the future! This is a completely free, super chill workshop.

This winter season Amy Shah is leading an initiative called the #100Hats Project to make and donate 100+ handmade winter clothing items to people in need in West and Downtown Louisville. She is partnering with LVL1 Hackerspace which has been awarded a grant to help realize this goal. This is the second winter for this project. It was very successful last year! LVL1 members made over 100 hats to give to people in need. This year, we have made 26 handmade hats to date and donated them to Centerstone and the Home of the Innocents. We are accepting yarn or monetary donations at LVL1 Hackerspace 1205 East Washington St. www.lvl1.org
