Dayton has been a hub of innovation since the late 1800's, most famously being the location where the Wright Brothers created the first successful 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! We'll be bringing along one of the new Raspberry Pi 2 Model B boards to demo and to give away at each location as well as other maker items.
Dayton Diode is a hackerspace. Hackerspaces are places where engineers, artists, hackers and makers can meet, work and collaborate. The hackerspace is a community work-shop built around the open source ethic and an innovative spirit. Dayton Diode is a special interest group (SIG) of the Dayton Microcomputer Association an Ohio 501c(3) non-profit organization.

Weekly Raspberry Pi Meet Up Group
FabSpace is a place to learn and make. It is a community workshop filled with digital tools like a CNC router, a laser cutter, and a 3D printer. We like to think of it as D.I.Y done together, where people with the love of creating gather to play, to learn, to teach, to invent, to innovate, to build things. FabSpace is currently not a physical space, but is in the middle of a capital campaign.
7:00 PM Thursday, February 5th - FabSpace

Monthly 3D Printing Meet Up
Also, while mentioning Dayton maker spaces we can't forget Proto Build Bar which isn't having a meetup, but is a unique no membership fee maker space / bar
PROTO, the World's First Buildbar - This amazing creative and technology experience center is part 3D printing lab, part electronic maker space, and part café. Proto is a fun, hands-on place where people of all ages and experience levels can come together around a simple, yet powerful idea: “I want to make something great.”
