Pumping Station: One Birthday Bash
Saturday, May 4, 2013 at 7:00 PM (PDT)
Four years and a month ago a rowdy bunch of hackers and makers moved into what would be Pumping Station: One's first location. Come celebrate our fourth anniversary in our new space!
When: May 4th, 7PM – Demos and reception; 10PM – Live music!
Where: Pumping Station: One, 3519 N. Elston (near Addison and Kedzie)
We'll have some of our awesome projects and demonstrations on display for you, so come check them out! We'll have:
Souped-up Power Wheels Racers
Brain-based Jacob's Ladder
Other cool things!
It wouldn't be a real hackerspace party if there wasn't some good ol' fashioned hacking going on:
Make art with lasers!
Silkscreen your own art poster!
Learn to solder and walk away with your very own blinkie badge!
Print your first object using one of our 3D printers
We'll have liquid refreshments and some light snacks. Later on we'll have music and a light up LED birthday cake. Feel free to invite your friends, too!
All funds will go to helping us build out our new kitchen area.
When & Where
Pumping Station: One
Pumping Station One is a hackerspace located in Chicago. Its mission is to foster a collaborative environment wherein people can explore and create intersections between technology, science, art, and culture.
What are we?
We are a collaborative environment for people to explore the intersections between technology, art and culture. We are a hacker space similar to others such as the Cowtown Computer Congress, NYC Resistor, NoiseBridge, HACDC, and other groups around the country.
We also fulfill our role as a community resource by hosting classes on electronics, programming, crafts, and any other skills that members (or guests) are willing to share.
