What we're about

Solid State Depot is THE Boulder hackerspace. Founded in 2010 at a local coffee shop, we have graduated to our own space with our own tools and have developed quite the community.

Have no clue what a hackerspace is? Simple, it's a place for hackers, tinkerers, makers, artists, musicians, engineers, scientists, crafters, gamers, players and doers to get to together, work on projects, share ideas and create something great. They're often referred to as a makerspace, shared workshop, makershop, and many more.

Come visit us at Solid State Depot every Tuesday night, 7:30PM, where we offer an open house-style meetup. Here we open ourselves up to the public to show off our space, our projects and ourselves. Whether you're a veteran hacker or are completely new to hackerspaces, we invite you to come and see what we're all about. Our members' interests range from software, hardware, electronics, woodworking, machining, welding, art, sewing, crafting, sustainability, interactivity, philosophy to many other areas. If you have an idea you want to get off the ground, if you don't have the space or tools to work on a project, if you're looking for like-minded folks, if you need help brainstorming, if you just want a place to hang out and chat, we're here for you. Other meetups include workshops, classes and other events, so stay tuned.

If you would like to become a full-time, paying member, please visit our website for more information: http://boulderhackerspace.com/dues/ Membership gets you 24/7 access to the space, access to all of our tools and supplies (with proper training), discounts on classes/workshops and supplies, and access to all the wonderful members of our community.

In-Person Open House - Every Tuesday

Solid State Depot

Our Tuesday Meetup is a great place to meet and greet members, learn about our projects and learn about what *you* might like to do. See the 'space, see the tools, and figure out how to get that project going that you've always wanted to try.

We're excited to be opening back up to in-person open houses! You can visit in person, or virtually. Individuals who are not vaccinated are required to wear a mask at all times. Those who wish to visit without a mask may be asked to show proof of vaccination two weeks after their final dose.

The evening usually consists of members hanging out and new faces stopping by to check out Solid State Depot. We have a weekly meeting that usually begins around 7:30. Anyone is welcome to attend. Bring yourself, bring your friends, bring the family.

Our members hack Arduino, 3d Printing, Aquaponics, Wearable Electronics and more. Well, we're still waiting on that one special robot - but it's coming along!

Our physical space has member spaces for Woodworking, Metalwork, Welding, 3D printing, Laser Cutting, Textiles, Computing, Electronics, and more! We'll also soon have Ceramics, Photography, Painting, and more!

We aim to bring together all types of makers and hackers, from coders, and 3D print enthusiasts to Ceramics artists, woodworkers, digital artists, and engineers.
