First Event for March

Build/Hack Day

March 1 @ 9:30 AM4:00 PM

We’re all gonna get together and have fun working on our projects. Join us at Ricks house, bring your projects and toolbox. We’ll have an outdoor space setup to work. Along with the fab shop and lots of computers.

If you don’t have a project you can have fun taking something apart (we’ve got lots of out of use items). Build an engraver from 2 dvd drives? We’ve got all the stuff, just come and hack around on it and have fun with the rest of us.

News 5 features a story about “Coding Crisis” here in America

WKRG Coding Crisis

WKRG News 5 here in Mobile featured a story last night about the lack of Computer Science and Programming curriculum in local schools and across our nation.

CS and programming are not being taught to school kids.

Makerspaces have always been focused on learning. Learning to code and program both in digital and physical realms has always been a major part of the bedrock of “Maker” culture. With Open Source Programs opening the possibility for young programmers to peruse source code for mainstream programs and even operating systems.  And Products like the Raspberry Pi and Arduino offering (more) affordable ways to dabble in coding, automation and even web serving, with minimal commitment and allocation of resources.

Makerspaces are now popping up in towns, schools and libraries all over the country (and the world)

People are coming together to build their ideas be it code or gadgets or machines.

P.S. Last night was part 1 tonight they will be showing part 2 be sure to tune in.
