The Hands-on-Tech club’s goal is to enable people to make things using technology. This is hands-on. That is, you will be designing and making your own tech projects. The technologies we will use include 3D printing, alternative computers (Arduino, raspberry Pi, etc), robotics, and drones. As our club progresses we will add other technologies as members desire.
