Workshop Weekend #3

Here’s a note from JD and Gil at I’ll be teaching Beetlebots :-)

Hello there!

We’re very excited to announce the next Workshop Weekend!

Our next weekend of soldering, programming, building, crafting and exploring is coming up in just six short weeks —  March 17th and 18th at Tech Liminal in Oakland.


Interested in teaching?

We just opened teacher registration this week. If you’re interested in teaching, or know someone who might be, send them to our website at

The deadline to sign up is  Wednesday, February 15, just twelve days away! Sign up even if you don’t have a perfect idea for a workshop — we’ll work with you to develop your vision into a great workshop.


Want to take workshops?

We’ve got commitments from teachers for a few old favorite workshops — including  Arduino,Sewing with Electronics, and  Electroluminescent Wire Sculpture  — and we’re adding a few new frequently-requested workshops, including  Programming,  Robotics,  Web Development, and  Lockpicking.

If you’d like to see a new workshop, but haven’t told us about it yet, let us know! Fill out our workshop suggestion form:

We’ll send another email when student registration is open, in about two weeks. In the meantime, be sure to save  March 17-18!


Happy 2012, and see you in March!

J.D. and Gil

    Darn but I wish I knew how to get him in touch with the right folks in his area to help him build stuff! I know a lot of bay area programs.

    The online video and print resources really need some adult guidance.
