First Makerspace Evening!

The first Makerspace evening is booked for the evening of Wednesday 16th of October, everyone has cleared the calenders and the lasers have been charged (only joking, we don’t have any lasers…. yet)

Room C130 in the library. 6.30 until 9PM. Or until the lasers, we don’t have run out of power. Staff and Students welcome!

Some lasers. We don’t have any of these

Looking forward to seeing you there! Bring lasers!*

*actually, don’t bring any lasers. We wouldn’t want to deal with the paperwork.
