Below are links to information about some of the groups and projects currently active at the Electron Club. From each link you will find information about what they do, when they meet, and contact details if you want to find out more or get involved.
Whilst we encourage support for not-for-profit groups and projects, you don't have to be part of one to use the Electron Club. Individuals are also welcome to join, make use of the mailing list and book the space for their own activities.
