MCM Electronics Visits Dayton Maker Spaces - 2/5/15

Posted by Greg on Feb 3, 2015

Dayton has been hub of innovation since the late 1800's, most famously being the place where the Wright Brothers built the first airplane. Since then we've had continued creation and innovation, enough to now support three maker spaces within the city! MCM Electronics supports makers and we will be stopping by two local maker spaces this Thursday, February 5th to see what they are creating!

Please join us at these two great maker meet ups if you happen to be in the Dayton area and are curious about Raspberry Pi, 3D Printing or the maker movement in general! [More]
