Open House at FamiLAB in Longwood


Every month on the first Tuesday, FamiLAB welcomes the public to meet our members and enjoy our collaborative space! Please register on Eventbrite to let us know you're coming! 

And if you're interested in catching dinner before, meet at 4 Rivers Smokehouse on SR434 in Longwood at 7pm.

FamiLAB is Central Florida’s provider of space, tools, and community for creative technical learning and projects. If you are looking for a great place to meet like-minded people, learn, collaborate on projects, and have access to great tools, FamiLAB is the place for you!

FamiLAB welcomes makers, artists, thinkers, hackers*, crafters, and everyone else – come wield your imagination in any (legal and ethical) way you see fit. Think of FamiLAB as a club for geeks!  Whether you are an art geek, hardware geek, photography geek, code geek, lab geek, or any geek in between–we would like you to join us at the lab and teach a class, lead a lecture, or simply work on a project while surrounded by awesome people. If you can think of it, come build and share it the lab. 

FamiLAB is a community that fosters learning and creativity through hands-on projects, collaboration, and the sharing of skills & tools to improve ourselves and enrich the world around us.

Following the philosophies of the worldwide hackerspace* movement, FamiLAB seeks to be a diverse community where people of various backgrounds can come together to teach and learn. We provide a space, tools, and a community of geeks for you to utilize.  Our current tools include hand tools, basic power tools, soldering stations, 3D printers, a laser cutter. Interests among current members range from abstract mathematics to microcontrollers, iPhone and Android application programming, Arduino design and coding, PCB design, FPGA design, Quadracopters, etc.  We're always looking for new people to collaborate on current projects or bring new projects to the table.

* A note on the label  ”hacker” as used in “hackerspace”:  There are ethical hackers and non-ethical hackers, just like there are ethical and non-ethical people in almost every field. Unfortunately, the media only uses “hacker” in the negative context. This wikipedia article explains the origins of the term “hacker”, and we encourage you to read it.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
