We meet every other Monday, in opposition to PS:1's embedded systems interest group, NERP. We're listed on PS:1's calendar.

Probably some people working on projects. Soldering, programming of arduinos and whatever else. People talking about electronics theory and explaining concepts like Ohm's Law.
