PJRC has graciously sent us a handfull of "cosmetically challenged" Teensy 3.0 development boards! You may have seen the Teensy 2.0 used in some of the demos we do at various events around town, and this is our first time getting hands on the much faster 32 bit version. We'll get these in some members hand tonight and see what we they come up with!Read more...
Bring your own wire wreath frame and gloves to protect your fingers from being poked and sappy.

Come explore the world of 3D printers as Arch Reactor hosts Meet-Up.Com's monthly Saint Louis 3D Printer Meetup.
Learn the different tools, software and hacks being used to generate various textures and results.
Last month had over 40 people in attendance from the entire Saint Louis Bi-State area.
No microcontroller, programming or electronics experience needed. If you have an Arduino (or some clone) bring it, otherwise come and learn which would be best for you. Free, but please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org . Questions can also be sent to that address. There is no cost for the class.

KC Maker Faire was a big success! We had 2 days of fun met many exciting new people. Learned about new ideas and technologies and had a great time doing it.
The following are photos from the event. If you are an AR member and have photos to post please
send them to email@example.com and I'll get them posted.
Science Olympiad Saturday
Saturday April 13th, 2013
5:00PM until 9:00PMish
Open to all ages and to the public. People are encouraged to form teams of 2 or 3 people. Individual players will be matched up prior to the event. We are asking for a $5 donation per team to cover supplies which will be provided. Three events are planned:
1) Egg Drop - Teams will construct apparatuses to be dropped from the top of the building and safely land on a ground target.
2 Boomilever - Teams will design a boomilever (google it). Score will be a combination of weight, weight held and duration of holding the weight.
3) Rube Goldberg machine. Teams will construct a three phase machine with stuff off the junk bins or from within the space. Coolest operational design wins. The rest of the night can be spent combining all the entries into a promotional video for AR.
This event is guaranteed to be fun, prizes are likely to be a slap on the back and status label of "Cool People of the Day". Scoring system is still being finalized but is weighted equally over three events. If there's a tie (which I'm hoping for) , the tie-breaker is awesome.
