What is a hackerspace?

A hackerspace (a.k.a. makerspace, or hackspace) is a shared community workspace where people with common interests (often techie) can meet to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge. See Wikipedia for more information.

Laptop Raffle

We are raffling off a working Mac Laptop.

All dues current AMT members are eligible to enter as many times as they would like.

How to enter

To enter the raffle you need to submit the story of a project you have worked on at AMT. Entries should include 2-5 paragraphs that describe what your project is, what tools you used, what materials you used and what you learned while working on the project. Entries should also include 3-5 pictures of your project with in progress shots being highly valued.

Your project doesn't have to have even come out well... you can submit the story of a project you tried that didn't come out.

Your project story doesn't have to be about a complete project. If you are working on something really complex that is taking month and months feel free to enter the story of how you made one part of it. Or where you are with the project, what you have learned or used so far
