We’ve had a bunch of cool donations to the hackerspace from corporations so far. Â We’d just like to give a quick shout out to them:
CadSoftUSA, Element14 and Newark - They gave us a whole stack of EagleCad Manuals, tutorials and stickers along with some Element14 T-shirts / swag. Â They also sponsored the Great Global Hackerspace Challenge which we recently finished our entry in! Â Not only did we get $900 to build an educational device, we’re also getting some top notch soldering irons, and a full Eagle CAD license. Â And, if we make it into the finals, some additional cool equipment to use at the lab.
Instructables - We got an email from someone at Instructables. Â Soon after, we were the proudÂ recipientsÂ of a bunch of T-shirts, cool little foam robots (which we further donated to 2600 peeps), some stickers, patches, free pro accounts for members, and banner space on the site!
Voltaic Systems – donated a big box of white LEDs on cables and a few solar panels to hack on.
SunLED - sent us some samples of their cool SMT LEDS
Lego – Donated a Mindstorms NXT 2.0
Summercon – Our first advertiser on the site. Thanks for having another awesome con this year. The Locksport Hut was a lot of fun.
