We enter the cold, dark days of December with a super Open House meeting. As always, the night starts off with our 7pm Scrum stand-up meeting for members to update everyone on the progress of their projects. 8pm starts the official Open House, with pizza, soda, and snacks.

Keeping in our new tradition of “mini projects for open houses”, Adam and Jack will be showing everyone the basics of building electric motors. Previous open houses covered Glowsticks and Bristle Bots. Building simple motors is really a lot easier than you might initially think. Hand-made electric motors are a fun way to learn basic principles of circuits as well as a handy skill for any project that needs a little movement. Come on down and play with electromagnetic fields with us!
