What we're about

OlyMEGA (Olympia Makers, Engineers, Geeks and Artists) is a technology interest group open to all ages and all knowledge levels.

The mission of OlyMEGA is to create an open tech community in the Olympia/Thurston County.

Members are encouraged to share their knowledge, learn from others, and create from what they learn.

We have a shared workshop called a MakerSpace at the rear of 312 4th Avenue E., Olympia. We have a weekly Open Hack on Thursday Night starting at 7PM.

Potluck, games, and nerd talk

SteveG's place

Bring food (main dishes, side dishes, chips and dip, etc.), bring refreshments (Mountain Dew and Creme Soda seem to be favorites), bring a game you'd like to share, if you wish. Bring crockpots. We have an oven available. We will be inside, as the weather has turned wet and cold, although I reserve the right to barbecue even if it is snowing. We do have two cats, indoor only. Robyn has a -lot- of board and card games. And I just got her an Escape Room game, and have agreed to try it at least once. If you don't play games, that's fine, too. I love to talk nerdy. I or one of the other OlyMEGAns there are always available for technical questions/help. My laptop is connected to a 32 inch TV next to a whiteboard, so we can play with Sketchup, Fusion 360, Arduino programming, etc. We'll do something techie, or at least talk about them. Feel free to bring stuff to show and tell. If you think you might make it, -please- RSVP. When only one or two people say they are coming, I think it discourages people from coming, especially new members. We usually have at least a half-dozen there at any one time. We do have two cats, so please watch your feet as one is not good at getting out of the way and may try to dash outside just because people are there. Both are very friendly. Support OlyMEGA!
