Reverse Space – Build, Create, Collaborate. “Help Organize & Build Day”

[masked]PM to 11PM Open. All are welcome!

It's been quite a while since we organized the space. A well organized and clean Makerspace space should help us improve our new member participation and sign up. From 6pm to 8:30pm we will be organizing the space, and from 8:30pm to 11pm we will be back to work on our regular projects. We also need someone to inventory expensive items like microcontrollers and hard to find 3D printer parts. This is also important since some items can take a month or two from China to get here. If we have time, we would like to setup a micro controller and electronics lab or workspace with the soldering machines and equipment ready for use at any time. We will have a label machine, over 25 to 50 plastic containers, a large selection of shelves, and anything people think would be useful for the space.
If you have any projects you are working on, feel free to bring it to Reverse Space! We have locked storage space, hundred of tools and electronics, and the largest sections of free to use 3D printers for any Makerspace (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hackerspace) on the east coast of the US. At this time membership is free.
Other projects we are working on below. Help is always needed.
Micro controller (Arduino) – Looking for a group leader to start projects and setup lab.
Raspberry Pi – Installation of OS system and working test system for members.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.

Rafaël, started French Conversation Group
