GGHC Semifinalists Announced

Then there were three. After weeks of grueling, late-night hacking sessions, 27 of the original 30 GGHC participant groups submitted projects for judging and three were chosen as semifinalists. Stay tuned, we’ll be interviewing the three semifinalists here on MAKE. Until then, here are the projects:

The Hack Factory Needs Your Help!

The Hack Factory, the Twin Cities’ first and only hackerspace, needs a bunch of members and a bunch of dough to keep their space. Tax-deductable donations and membership inquiries are being fielded at TCMaker.org.

Spring Classes at TX/RX

TX/RX Labs, Houston’s non-profit hackerspace, is hosting a series of Spring classes for makers, artists, DIYers, and anyone who wants to have fun learning and collaborating. The classes include Wilderness Survival, Painting Techniques, Drawing Techniques, Intro to Arduino, Welding, and many more. We hope Houston will come out and learn some new skills and also learn about the hackerspace and its roll at bringing individuals together to collaborate and find new and exciting ways to bring life to our city.

Hackerspace Microphone-Building Class Series

Circuit-bending band CMKT 4 is making a hackerspace tour through the west and midwest, including a visit to the upcoming Maker Faire. At each stop (13 visits are scheduled already) they’re doing to do a performance and a workshop for fifteen bucks.

CMKT 4 is headed to Maker Faire San Francisco. We’ll be stopping at as many Hackerspaces as we can on the way teaching our popular EconoMIC Contact Microphone Building Class. Of course we will include a performance at each of the workshops and we should be appearing on the Maker Faire stage! Take a look at our tour dates to see when we’ll be near you! Message us if you’d like to help us fill in any open days.

Are you a hackerspace member with an event you’d like to publicize? Send it to johnb@makezine.com or tweet me at @johnbaichtal and I’ll post it. Also feel free to subscribe to my hackerspaces Twitter list. Hackerspace Happenings will run weekly Tuesdays, and the next one will come out May 17th.
