Pumping Station: One is Chicago's oldest and largest hackerspace at 3519 N. Elston Ave. We're a community of artists, software developers, electrical engineers, machinists, woodworkers welders, knitters and anything else you can imagine. Our members are passionate about making new things, fixing old things, learning about everything under the sun and teaching others.

Many of our classes and workshops are open to the public, and if you've ever been interested in making things (any things!) please join us and jump right in.

There is an open house on Tuesday evenings around 8 pm. Come for the start of the member meeting, introduce yourself, then one of the members will volunteer to give a tour for non-members.
