Membership rates are going up in 2015 – Get in before then!

As some of the more astute among you have already noticed, VHS’s membership rates are going up. This was decided (unanimously) after taking a look at our budget. Simply put, in January 2015, our rent will go up by about 10%, and at our current rate and membership numbers, we can’t afford this. Accordingly, our […]

Apparently real SMD hackers only use solder paste and toaster ovens so we’re here to […]

SMD July – Build MakeyMakey on July 24th at VHS

When Kickstarter came to VHS to talk about launching campaigns they showed MaKeyMaKey as an example. They chose well. This has to be close to the most fun you can find in a circuit. You can find out lots about it online, it is even more fun than it looks! MaKeyMaKey is open hardware, all the […]
