Happy new year!
2016 was a good year for Melbourne Eastern Suburbs Hackers. We finally attained our goal of a permanent location after negotiations with Swinburne University and Knox City Council. In March we attended the Melbourne Mini Maker Faire at Swinburne Wantirna Campus, two weeks later we held our first meeting in room WJ111 at the same campus. Thanks Swinburne!
In June we applied for a grant from Knox City Council, in August we found out we won! MESH is now the proud owner of an 80 W laser cutter, with the obligation to give access to the Knox community. Thanks Knox Council!
During the year MESH attended many other maker events including, the Maker Community Event for Melbourne Knowledge Week, the Mini Make Day at the Library at the Dock, Stringybark Festival and TOM Melbourne.
We would like to wish everyone a happen new year. May 2017 be an even better year for MESH!
