Fall Cleanup


Saturday, 18 November, 10:00am – 2:00pm

Enough binging; it’s time to purge!

We’re clearing out abandoned projects* and the boneyard. We’ll have a dumpster and a determined attitude. Pizza will be provided for dedicated helpers!

*Red tags were placed on projects in the large storage area. If you have a project there, please either take it home or verify that you are still working on it by replacing the red tag with a green one. Contact Jared if you can’t make it in to the space before the purge. All red tag items will be removed from the space.

Bringing your own laptop would be useful but not mandatory

The workshop will provide the following items

  • 1- capacitor
  • 1-meter neopixel led strip
  • 1 power supply
  • 1 Arduino

There will be a couple of CNC/laser cut holiday ornaments to wrap the lights on.

You do not need to be a member, but everyone must register and purchase a ticket.
Price $30.00
