Hitchin Hackspace are currently renovating an abandoned toilet block and converting it into a physical hackspace or Community Workshop (you can view the details and view the size tables here). They need your help to get funding for the next stage. They’ve applied through the Aviva Community Fund and are at the stage where they need votes to get the funding. So, if you have a spare five minutes, please register and vote for them!
Their aims for the block are as follows:
- Encourage STEM subjects and ‘making’ within the North Hertfordshire community
- Provide access to tools and knowledge that would otherwise be unavailable to the community
- Invest in, and house a range of equipment – from woodworking tools to digital manufacturing tools such as laser cutters and 3D printers which are beyond the budget of individuals
- Get involved in outreach work with local schools and youth groups.
You get 10 votes to use, so you may find other projects that catch your eye, but if you could spare at least some of them for the Hitchin Hackspace project, that’d be great! 🙂
