We’ve made good use of our expansion by relocating the woodshop to the back half of the additional space. This opens up much more space for woodworking and eventually more tools and work surfaces. Thanks to generous donors and volunteers for polishing the floor, painting walls, hanging lights, moving equipment, and so much more.
Activity and description: Children participating in the programs will make their own computers using a Raspberry Pi, a touchscreen, and more. During the program, they will learn also soldering skills and be introduced to programming using Scratch, MineCraft, and Python. Instructors and volunteers will guide and support the children over course of the program. Students […]

2013 was a great start for us at Tampa Hackerspace. Rather than go on and on about what we’ve done, I’ll simply post a list and conclude with some of the things that we already know we’re looking towards in 2014. We’re planning a board workshop to do some goal setting but I really want […]
