Dorkbot DC/Make: DC meeting, Wednesday, Jan 16

This Wednesday (7 PM – 9 PM ET) is the January meeting of Dorkbot DC and the inaugural meeting of Make: DC, a new project building group inspired by MAKE magazine. We will likely be holding several joint Dorkbot DC and Make: DC events throughout the coming year.

During this first joint meeting, we’ll be building LED cubes based on on the Make: Weekend Projects podcast. See the Dorkbot DC website for details on what tools and hardware to bring. If you don’t have the require components, you can still come and help out. There’s *a lot* of soldering to do.

We’ll be meeting at the lovely Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences, 6th & E Streets, NW, Washington, DC 20001, (202) 334-1201.

This event is co-sponsored by The Maker Store.
