PLAY PONG WITH US

In lieu of our usual First Friday activity, Vector Space will be participating in Get Downtown on September 7th. At their booth (in the City Center Lot on the corner of Main and 10th), you can play a giant game of pong using astronomy lasers and our DIY controllers to project the classic arcade game on the side of a building. Come see how woodworking, 3d printing, servo motors, and python come together in this quirky project. Get Downtown is free to attend, see details at www.getdowntownlynchburg.com.

This event is free and family-friendly.
