The University Library Makerspace is hosting Drone Photos on Monday, February 27 anytime between 10-4. Take some amazing aerial photos while learning to pilot a drone. AND, you might want to submit one of those photos to the library photo contest for a $100 prize! Trivia: drones sound a bit like gigantic, stinging bees.
Also on Monday from 5:30-7, the Makerspace will be hosting a Retro Gaming on a Raspberry Pi program. You don’t need an NES Classic. Learn what you need to build your own retro gaming machine using the credit card sized Raspberry Pi computer (although this is a hands-on session, attendees can’t keep the Pis).
