What we're about

We are a hacker space located in Washington, DC. HacDC members improve the world by creatively rethinking technology. We break, build, and occasionally abuse technology in the pursuit of greater knowledge about how it works and repurposing it to build new things. Our shop is located in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of DC. Visit our site at http://hacdc.org for more details.

Upcoming events (4+)

Microfabrication Monday

Online event

We're a group of hackers inspired by makers like Applied Science and Sam Zeloof trying to collaborate on the enormous challenge of reproducing the Semiconductor Revolution in our garages. The dream is to eventually succeed in making our own transistors, but at the moment, we're focusing on acquiring, repairing, and learning to operate the basic tools, including a lithography setup and a Cambridge Stereoscan SEM. Join us to chat about ideas and help if you are interested!

Open Project Night

Online event

This is our recurring unstructured get-together for hanging out and working on projects. We're always excited to hear about what the community is working on, but we're also happy to just provide background noise while you code, solder, or sew conductive thread into your clothes. Feel free to join anytime during the meeting window.

Normally we would be meeting at the HacDC space at 1525 Newton St in the St Stephens church but, due to COVID, this is an online event for now. Hope to be able to see you all in person soon!
