Location: 29th Southampton Scout Hut, Brickfield Road, Southampton
Entry: recommended donation £4 (GiftAid appreciated), lower is fine

This event is hosted by 29th Southampton Scout Group, all

Facilities

There is no internet connection at the Scout Hut, but 3G internet is
available.
Soldering is allowed, but will be restricted to a couple of tables to
prevent the spread of damage. Tables, chairs and electricity will be
available, but you should bring anything else you’ll need (laptops,
components, soldering irons). We encourage our members to share
resources
with other members, so if you don’t have something (e.g. a
soldering iron) then don’t worry – I’m sure someone will let you use
theirs.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available, but you’ll need to sort out
your own lunch.

What is a Hack Day?

It’s a day where people can bring along their current projects (if any)
and can work on them in the presence of other like-minded individuals.
Others can have a look around, gain inspiration or offer a helping hand,
or just have fun!

Are you just starting out with Arduino/Raspberry Pi?
Putting the finishing touches on your latest life-size robot? Planning
to build a water jet-pack? Hacking electronics into clothing? Hacking
together the components necessary to make a new GNU/Linux distro or
media centre software? Join us!

What if I don’t have a current project?

Come along anyway – help with someone else’s, or get ideas for what you
could do! Skilled or unskilled, knowledgeable or not-so-knowledgeable,
all are welcome!

Where do I sign up? What projects are going on there?

All you need to do is turn up, but the more people that come the merrier
- so let people know you are coming on our mailing list,
and if you’re planning on bringing a project with you then let us know
what it is!
