At Nottinghack we run a number of practical workshops. Often they involve a kit of parts. These kits are available from the folk at Nottinghack (typically most should be in the vending machine). If you would like to buy one then just ask. If you have any ideas for kits to develop then please add them to this wiki or come to the space and chat about it. We had a pledge drive to obtain a vending machine and thanks to the hard work of some hackspace folk, it is now running and ready to vend. It uses the RFID tag for cashless vending. We also supply parts for hacking with, including microcontrollers, which are on this list and in the vending machine.
