Arduino Night – Wednesday June 10th @ 7:00PM

While we at BC Robotics have taken a break from hosting Arduino Night for the summer, we will continue to sponsor this popular event. Every Wednesday Makerspace Nanaimo will be hosting an Arduino Night. Drop in if you have a project you’re working on, are looking for assistance, or would like to learn what an Arduino does.

This coming weekend is the 5th annual Vancouver Mini Maker Faire! The Vancouver Mini Maker Faire was founded in 2011 by members from various hobbyist groups including Vancouver Hack Space (VHS) and has been growing every year – the event runs on Saturday and Sunday from 10AM – 6:00PM at the PNE Forum in Vancouver.
