Hello Awesome Women - 


A heads up on an awesomer than usual event happening this weekend at Pumping Station 1 (a hacker space for physical objects - think 3D printers, ardiunos, and circuit bending)  - We will be doing some collaborations with them in the very near future so this is a great opportunity to get out and see what they're about, enjoy a party, and have a no strings attached love affair with technology.


Info below, I will eventually have to leave to see my husband's art opening, but otherwise you will find me there, lost in the wonders of maker heven - hope to see some of you there as well.

 - Melissa


A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away …

Ok, three years ago in a coffee shop not far from here, Pumping Station: One was just a dream in the heads of a bunch of DIYers who had no idea what they were in for. Come celebrate our 3 year anniversary!

Date: April 14
Time: 7pm – Demos and Reception; 10pm – Circuit bent music
Place: Pumping Station: One, 3354 N. Elston (near Belmont and California)

Come check out the awesome hackerspace we’ve built and some of the cool projects we’ve made there, including:

  • Life Size TARDIS
  • Actual Time Machine*
  • “Fresh Paint” Magnetic Light Board
  • High Five Glove
  • Play the Didgeridoo
  • LED Cube
  • Brain Based Jacob’s Ladder
  • DIY Quadrocopter
  • Suped-up Power Wheels Racer
  • “Counter-Intuitive” an electromechanical machine

Plus, make stuff with our most futuristic tools:

  • ShapeOko CNC Mill
  • ORD Bot 3D Printer
  • Epilog Laser Cutter
  • Learn to solder your own blinkie badge!
  • Silkscreen your own art poster!

Later in the evening, join the party with live music from circuit benders Tomer Gal and Michael Una and enjoy a slice of midnight birthday cake.

There is a $20 door fee to fund our expansion into a larger location.
