The original member-based do-it-yourself workshop and fabrication studio is having an action-packed open house right here in the Raleigh-Durham location on Friday, June 29 from 5PM to 10PM and Saturday, June 30 from 10AM to 5PM. Hey! That's this weekend!
There have been a lot of changes recently: they've renovated the space, upgraded the equipment, and acquired some incredible new tools including a brand new LASER cutter, a MakerBot 3D printer (Thing-o-Matic), and more woodworking and metalworking equipment to list.
There are going to be some CRAZY-GOOD DEALS on memberships and classes that weekend. You'd be well-advised to take advantage of them!
We suggest you head over there, take a tour of the space, and see what all the members have been busy Making. The celebration is free and fun for the whole family. Prepare to be inspired!
I've just been informed that our friends at NC NearSpace Research will be launching another high altitude balloon during the party. Check out their site for more info including scheduling information which, at time of writing, is still up in the air (zing!).
