Thank you to everyone who came out to our Blacksmithing Class last night. It was good to see so many old and new faces.

Special thanks goes to Myles, our Sergeant At Arms, who volunteered to teach the class and made the forge for us to use.

20 People came to Arch Reactor to learn how to get started with microcontroller programing and electronic circuits using Arduino. Chris W. taught the class and other members were on hand to assist in the learning. 

This was the first in a series, if you already know some basics keep an eye out for the next class.

At the end of this 2 hour workshop 20 more people now know what an arduino is, what it isn't, what it can and can't be used for. They also learned some electronics basics like how to read schematics, what resistors and capacitors actually do and when to use them.

At Arch Reactor we were disappointed to hear that TechShop is seeking bankruptcy protection and has closed all their locations, including their St Louis location in Cortex. We know how important being able to use TechShop's workspace and equipment was to their members, many of whom relied on those facilities to do work for their small businesses.

 

If you are a member of TechShop who is now looking for a new workshop, we'd like to welcome you into the Arch Reactor community! We don't have all of the equipment that TechShop had, but we do have a laser cutter, 3D printers, and a variety of woodworking and metalworking tools.

 

 

Please see our calendar for times when our space will be open and feel free to come get a tour and meet members at any event. We'll be having an Open House on Sunday, November 19 at 7:00pm, which would be a fine time for TechShop members to visit and learn more about Arch Reactor. The space is also opened at other times unscheduled. See "Space Status" on the right side of our home page to see whether the space is open at the current time.

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!
