Need Something? Check our Hobby Shop Inventory. In addition to add-on dongles we will try to have components / supplies on site (ICs, chips, solder points, nuts and screws, etc.) BUT to help ensure we bring what you need ask Bill because we can’t guess what part will be needed for every project. If you have already made a request you will be contacted if the items are NOT available.

You don’t have to be an expert!
The hack-a-thon is an excellent opportunity to learn from others and to collaborate on projects.

There are plenty of places within walking distance to eat, drink and visit in Kennett Square

The museum is located across the street from the hack-a-thon and will be open 12-4 as usual.
