Description:

Come play with electronics at Artisan's Asylum! Whether you're a newbie or an experienced hacker, there will be something for you at Circuit Hacking Night. This one night the electronics & robotics lab will be open for FREE -- there will be a free introductory soldering lesson, electronics kits on hand for sale for those who wish to make things, and experienced hackers and engineers around to answer all your questions. Feel free to bring your own projects to work on if you have them!

The proceeds of all sales and donations will go directly towards funding maintenance and improvements in the Electronics & Robotics lab of Artisan's Asylum: to buying new equipment, keeping consumables in stock, and towards general upkeep.
