Raspberry Pi

Pi Night – Thursday 18th Oct 2018

On the third Thursday of each month Basingstoke Makerspace members get together for “Pi Night”.  This month that will be on 18th Oct at 7:00pm.

This is an open meeting for all members to pose and answer any Raspberry Pi related questions.  Any Pi based topics can be brought up.  There is normally a range of levels of experience available, from those who want to know how to get started to those connecting their Pi to electronics and manipulating the GPIO pins via C.

Every Tuesday 7-9 pm – Makerspace Open Evening

Do you know what happens in a makerspace? Drop in to Basingstoke Makerspace on any Tuesday evening to find out.

At a recent Tuesday Open Evening. one individual was making a three-foot long dinosaur skeleton using a 3D printer. At the same time another was demonstrating how to use a wood lathe to create a wooden bowl.  A group of people at one table discussed  how  artificial Intelligence could be used in the home, while others were busy creating jewellery at a nearby table. Some just enjoyed the free tea and coffee and watched as others tried out a pen that creates 3D.objects.

All in all, a fairly typical evening at the Makerspace!

You can find us every Tuesday at Maritime House, 65 New Rd, Basingstoke RG21 7PW on the opposite side of the road to Majestic Wine in Basingstoke.
