Tool Tuesday -- Introduction to the Oscilloscope

On January 17th at 8 PM, we are having our monthly Tool Tuesday – Introduction to the Oscilloscope.

Come on out and learn what an Oscilloscope is, what uses it has, and the basics of operating it.

This event is open to everyone (students, residents, anyone!) and free.

This event will follow our normal weekly meeting (which starts at 7:30pm) and will be followed by our weekly open work session – both of which are always open to anyone! A great time to get a tour or be able to sit down and work on a project.

We’re at 2200 Kraft Drive, Suite 1475, Blacksburg, VA. Go all the way to the right end of the parking lot, where the trash disposal is and a bay door - we’re the bay door!

Meeting Tonight

Hello everyone! On behalf of Hacksburg, we hope that everyone has had a good winter holiday. 2016 is finally over, and we have a lot planned for 2017. We’re excited about it, and we hope you are too!

2016 Donations 2

So close! We almost got a donation from Kroger.

Dear Hacksburg,

Your supporters (3 households) who shopped at Kroger between 9-1-2016 and 11-30-2016 (Cycle 9, Qtr 1 2016 2017) have contributed to your $24.40 total donation. Because your total quarterly contribution is less than $25, which is the minimum check amount, you will not be receiving a check at this time. This amount will be held and combined with your next quarter’s contribution total until your contribution amount exceeds $25.

Thank you, Community Rewards Staff
