Aug 6 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Come and join BCARS for a completely free technician’s workshop. Hosted 4 times a year, we focus on a wide variety of technical topics. From amateur  to 3d printing to raspberry pi and electronics, there’s a little something for everyone. We encourage people to bring any projects, toys, or articles that they would like to discuss or show off. We will have a large display available, so if you want to show something to the group, we can make that happen.
