We had a table at our Science Center's First Friday Harry Potter themed event.  We exceeded Di's personal fundraising goal by $500!!! The Griffindor scarf had 166 raffle tickets in the bucket. ($1 each/6 for $5/13 for $10) Not too shabby! The wands (craftfully made by several of our members) were a HUGE hit (and the primary fundraiser). Rock On!!! The 3d printed Golden Snitch got 150 tickets in the bucket too.

The Saint Louis Science Center opened a new Makerspace in June and has asked members of Arch Reactor members to contribute as periodic Maker In Residence.   Today Frank Kallel and Diane Sudduth showed off Laser Cutting!    We restricted ourselves to cardstock so that we could make a lot of things to give away.   We made Science Center Logos, "inspirationsl "makey words" (Create, Make, Innovate, Question, etc) and Frank made a wonderful SLSC bookmark.   It was a fun day showing folks how lasers work and showing a bit of the design process!

Arch Reactor is happy to announce that we have received a grant from the Boeing Employee Community Fund.

“One of the largest employee-owned and managed funds of its kind in the world, the Employees Community Fund (ECF) of The Boeing Company has been empowering employees to make greater impact by pooling their tax-deductible donations for more than 60 years. Employee advisory boards provide combined employee donations to nonprofits in their community through ECF grants. Boeing pays all administrative costs so 100 percent of every employee dollar helps strengthen local communities.”

This grant will be used to purchase a presentation microphone system, standardized laptops, and multifunction robots to improve the quality of our programming classes. Again we thank the employees at Boeing for their generous support of our mission to increase STEM education. Check back soon to learn about classes in programming and robotics to be offered with these amazing tools.

About Our Hackerspace

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!
