Arduino Night – Wednesday May 6th

This Wednesday we will be hosting the last Arduino Night at Makerspace Nanaimo before we break for the summer. We will be hosting a variety of different events over the coming months to switch things up a bit so stay tuned for them!

What is an Arduino Night?
An Arduino night is a gathering of people interested in Arduino. At an Arduino night people tinker, collaborate, and learn together in a fun social atmosphere.
