Join us for this self-proclaimed "geek show-and-tell." Makers present their creations!
We have people interested in a wide scope of topics and endeavors. Programming, robots, machining, welding, artistic creations, metal casting, anything being built. Pretty much anything someone is "Making" is welcome at a Go-Tech meeting.
Also, if you have a problem with your project ask for help and the brain trust of Go-Tech will amaze you with solutions to difficulties you haven't even explored yet. This is an open group. All are welcome and especially young makers are encouraged to bring in a project to show off.
Second Tuesday of each month at 7pm.
