24 Hours of Archer Marathon and Hackathon


Bingewatch episodes of Archer, the animated spy sitcom, and make some cool spy gadgets. (Really, are there any spy gadgets that are NOT cool?)

The fun begins at 8:00pm on Friday, 3 November, and runs continuously until 12:00 noon on Sunday, 5 November. Prizes will be awarded at noon on Sunday in three categories: Hostile Work Environment, Phrasing, and That’s How you Get Ants.

You do not need to be a member to attend this event or use our equipment to make cool things.

Note: Our weekly Irregular Movie and Pizza Night coincides with the Archer Hackathon. You can still come and watch (Archer episodes instead of a movie) and/or make cool stuff (even if it’s not Archer related) and/or just hang out.

Check the calendar on our events page for other upcoming events and workshops.

Absolute Beginners Computer Programming Class


Monday, May 15th from 7-9 pm in the LVL1 Classroom.

We will be learning to program using the free KhanAcademy programming tutorials that are online. This class will be teaching the “processing” computer language which is very similar to C, javascript and the Arduino code. You could just go through the tutorials online by yourself, but I am offering to help guide you through the lessons and I will be there to help you if you get stuck. I used to teach these computer programming lessons to middle school students and found them to be quite good.

The cost is FREE for this class. Just show up at 7. You will need a laptop computer that can connect wirelessly to the internet. Contact if you have any questions.
