Hacker Factory offers February fun near Chesterfield

February 19, 2014 by  

For those people looking for something different, the Hacker Factory near Chesterfield will be holding double events this month that also serve as craft making sessions. Those who attend can take part in creating either Paperclip Projects or an LED Message Board.

Participants in the first session will learn how to turn ordinary paper clips into tiny machine parts for the creation of an actual operating machine. If they prefer, they can instead learn to make various types of jewelry—also from paper clips.

Those who prefer can learn how to make an actual operating LED Message Board that will display, upon completion, a message of their choice. As part of the session, participants will also learn about rudimentary electronics.

Participants in either event may want to work with a printing company to have banner printing carried out to serve as a backdrop for displaying their creation.

Each of the two activities will be offered as separate sessions on Saturday, February 22. The morning session will be held from 10:00 am till noon, while the afternoon session will run from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. The Paperclip Projects activity will cost $25 per person, while the LED Message Board activity will cost $30 per person. Preregistration for both is required via the Hacker Factory website. All sessions will take place at the Hacker Factory, 15 Arrowhead Industrial Blvd, St. Peters.
