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 learn@lvl1.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.

Letter from President Biden
This is an update about the ongoing #100Hats project.  In 2020, the #100Hats project donated around 100 hats to local charities. The project was also involved with the President's Volunteer Service Award Program at the University of Louisville. Every hour that was spent making and distributing the hats counted towards the volunteer service award.  The number of hours donated was over 250 hours!  President Biden honored the #100Hats Project and Amy Shah with a letter, certificate and pin. Wow!  LVL1 members, the #100Hats project is an award winning project! Thanks to the Awesome Foundation, Wonderful donors of time, money and yarn, and, of course,  LVL1 members for  making  all  this  possible.

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.
