The Rocket’s Red Glare

July 2, 2009

big_es_2162This Friday, in celebration of July 4th, HackPittsburgh’s open hours will be themed for model rocketry.  Thanks to Steve for the suggestion!

July 3rd (tomorrow!) from 6pm to 9pm, bring in your model rocket kits and the Exacto knives, glues, tapes, paints, and decals to put them together.  We recently received a donation of 3 model rockets, if you don’t have one to work on, but be sure to bring along some glue, etc. to assemble them!

If you need a rocket or the stuff to assemble them, check out Hobbytown USA in Monroeville or Robinson Town Center, or J&C Hobbies in Penn Hills or at the Pittsburgh Mills Mall.

If there is enough interest, Steve may have access to a nice field for some Saturday rocket launch action!

As always, feel free to bring your own projects to work on, or just come by and hang out!  We hope to see you there!

  1. Well, we didn’t actually build any rockets (no glue), but several people brought their own projects to work on, or dropped by to chat. We also had a few new folks drop by, and even one new sign up!
