Everyone is invited to come to the Arch Reactor for the Super Bowl of Destruction. We will have the football game on our big screen for everyone to watch. Not interested? Don’t worry, we also throw this party as something for the non-football enthusiasts. As a hackerspace, we use this time to breakdown all of the donations that are no longer usable or fixable. We have hard drives, computers, printers, server equipment, and more! Come join the mayhem and destruction! Don't forget to bring a Super Bowl party snack to share. We had lots of good food last year.
Destruction starts 12pm on Sunday February 5th at Arch Reactor, 2215 Scott Ave. 63103.
In addition, this year we are adding a Hack-a-thon challenge. After the destruction we will rebuild with all the donated materials in the Space. This year the hot toy for kids was Hatchimals, similar to Tamagotchi electronic pets.
The challenge is to hack together a robotic pet of your own. Here are the rules:

Seven of us participated in the Dirty Santa Gift Exchange this year. It was great fun and this year there was no real gotcha gifts. The was an electric disc shooter, a quad copter, an uno kit, a intro to microcontroller kit, a Walgreens gift card, an Arch Reactor coffee mug, and a line following robot kit. Derek had to change the rules so, "he wouldn't get screwed over."

Come check out the space at one of our regular Tuesday meetings or Sunday hack nights, year-round. Tuesday and Sunday events are always open to the public, and generally begin around 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!
