One of our members, Catherine, is having Maker Guild meetings at the space. Today we taught 8 kids (and some parents) how to solder. We made these cool Make badges with LED eyes. Kids were happy and proud! You can’t see it in the picture, but the eyes cycle through a rainbow of colors, but not in sync. We are happy to support the group. They will be the next generation of makers and hackers.
hack.rvahack.rva is a Richmond-based makerspace. We like to take things apart, put them back together, figure out how they work, and create new things. Our mission is to learn and make stuff. We share tools and knowledge in technology, including Arduino, Makerbot, Linux, and the Open Source movement.
