At our Family Open Make events, kids & 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.
While we welcome all families, please be aware that Tampa Hackerspace is an active workshop! Young children must be closely supervised at all times — this is *not* a drop off activity.
Minors (under 18 years old) must be accompanied by an adult, and adults should be accompanied by a child.
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 (https://wiki.tampahackerspace.com/How_to_Help#Donations_needed).
Cash donations are always gratefully accepted. Look for the donation jar when you get here.
