At Kids' Open Make, families have access to our space, project kits, materials, and hand tools to create, explore, and learn!

Kids, tweens, teens, and their parents are welcome to bring their own projects or work with ours. We have electronics, craft supplies, snap circuits, computer programming, Lego, games, "deconstruction zone", 2D & 3D CAD design, Little Bits, robots, Minecraft, and more. There is no charge for this event and all ages are welcome.

This is *not* a drop off activity. Parents must stay with their children to assist with projects. While we welcome all families, please be aware that Tampa Hackerspace is an active workshop and young children must be closely supervised at all times.

We're going to continue our "secret stuff" theme this week with codes, ciphers, cryptography, and hidden messages. These activities are optional, kids are always welcome to "do their own thing" instead.

We use quite a few consumable materials in our Kid's Open Make program, and we rely on donations from members and visitors to keep our kids' shelves stocked. We keep a list of needed items on our website (

Cash donations are always gratefully accepted. Look for the donation jar when you get here.
