Chris has completed our new Shapeoko and run a few test jobs. On July 29th we will have a Shapeoko Workshop night where we will do training. That night we will teach you how to use design software like Easel to produce a simple bottle opener.

Missouri Business Alert has published a great article discussing the Bright Ideas Expo and Arch Reactor's involvment.
Instructables and Dremel have selected Arch Reactor as one of its locations to host a build night to learn how to use Dremel tools and create awesome things!
We will be Dremel-ing and writing up our projects for others to learn via doing through the power of sharing knowledge. After a 15 minute safety demonstration, we will have five Dremel rotary tools with accessory kits and three Dremel reciprocating tools to make a mountain of awesome projects! We have a lot of things at Arch Reactor that could serve as the foundation for projects, but we want your ideas, your participation, and your projects to shine here. Bring any materials you may have and transform them into science, art, or something unique.
All are welcome. Check the Arch Reactor Calendar in July for the event datea and start time. There will be a mandatory 15 minute safety demonstration at the start of the build night.
Update: Tuesday, July 15th is the date. Show up as early as 7 pm to get started. If you can't make it until later, show up when you can. We have plenty of Dremel Tools to share.
Come out and build things with Dremel tools and learn how to make your projects a reality fast! See you there!
Update 6/22/2014: Below is a photo of the package of tools and accessories that have arrived for the Build Night.

Feb 7, Feb 21, Mar 7 from 1-4pm we will be building insect hotels at Arch Reactor
An insect hotel is a place for insects to raise their young or hibernate over winter. You can use your insect hotel to attract beneficial insects to your garden to feed birds, eat pests, and promote pollination. The insect hotel can be a attractive focal point in your garden and will provide you with many exciting opportunities to get close up views of the lives of the bees, beetles, and butterflies that call your garden home. Each workshop will include several stations to create different types of insect rooms. Come to all 3 workshops to create the insect resort hotel or just come to one and build a motel. Whatever you can manage your insects will thank you.

Come check out the space at one of our regular Tuesday meetings, year-round. Tuesday meetings are always open to the public, and generally begin at 7:30 pm.
Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.
For a deeper understanding of what we're about, you should check out our explanation of hackerspaces, perhaps read about one of our members' projects, or (best of all) come meet us in person at the next open event!
