Arduino Night

BC Robotics will be hosting another Arduino Night at Makerspace Nanaimo this coming Wednesday November 19th. The Arduino night seminar is loosely based on the guide found within the Arduino Starter Kit. If you are going to participate we do recommend having the kit, but it is not necessary. We suggest showing up around 7:00 PM to get set up as we will be starting at 7:30 PM sharp!

As usual we will have a bunch of goodies on hand from 6:30 – 7:30 PM if you feel like browsing some of the Arduino section of or catalogue in person – See you there!


Remembrance Day

Just a reminder – BC Robotics will be closed on Tuesday November 11th for Remembrance Day. All orders placed after 1:00 PM PST Monday November 10th will be shipped Wednesday November 12th.
