The Boffin Factory (348 Russ Engineering) is lab reserved for students doing cool projects. We like to call it an informal learning environment where students can use a wide variety of resources (arduinos, computers, raspberry pis, sensors, elecrtonics, soldering stations, oscilloscopes, etc.) for personal and group projects that support students furthering their education outside of the classroom. Projects meetings are Thursdays @ 6:30pm in room 348 Russ. All are welcome so come prepared to help out in whatever way you can!

Boffin Online Resources:

Trello, a free (or paid), online project and task management tool allows us to communicate when working on projects outside of the Thursday night meetings. Find us on trello @ https://trello.com/boffinfactory1

Github, another free (or paid) online tool for version control and collaboration on code. If you haven't yet, sign up for a github account and request to join boffin factory @ https://github.com/BoffinFactory
