Arduino class sign ups end at midnight Monday Feb 23

[Edit: Arduino class has been rescheduled to Saturday March 21 due to shipping delays from winter superstorm Thor, if you are registered on Eventbrite you should have already received an email about this schedule change, and you are still registered to attend the event on the new day of Saturday March 21.]

There are just a few spots left for the Arduino class happening at Quelab on Saturday, March 7, 2015 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM, but hurry — sign ups end at midnight Monday February 23 so we will have time to order Arduinos for participants.

There are also a few discounted tickets left for folks bringing their own Arduinos. If we haven’t sold out of those tickets before the class those will be available at the door, but if you want to ensure your place in class the best way to do that is to buy a ticket via eventbrite.


Workshop: Space Scenes

I would like to remind everyone about the upcoming Workshop we have planned for Wednesday 12 26 March. Our very own Spaceman Greg will be teaching a class on how to paint a stunning space scene. That’s right, Greg will be teaching you how to design your own worlds!

Wear your most rakish spray painting clothes and we’ll teach you how to spray paint your own space scene. If you want to pay at the door, let us know at events@quelab.net and we’ll hold you a slot in our rocketship*; otherwise, sign up at our Eventbrite

Eventbrite - Painting Space Scenes

*Rocketship is metaphorical, unfortunately. It means we’ll keep a spot for you in the class

EDIT: Due to a clerical error, this class was supposed to be scheduled for 26 March, so it has been rescheduled. Launch is a go!
