Mitch has taught thousands of people to solder and make cool things

conferences and schools almost everywhere.
If you have ever had any curiosity about making something with
electronics, then please join us. Anyone and everyone can learn to
make cool things. It's fun ..And easy! You can learn to make something
cool with electronics in one workshop, and take your project home with
you! Mitch's workshops have been enjoyed people of all ages. (Children

Quote from Guy Kawasaki -
One of the challenges that geeks, inventors, hobbyists, hackers, burners, and artists who are trying to change the world face is finding a place to do their work. Ideally, it would have lots of equipment, supplies, and other geeks
