Blast off to summer fun with this awesome family DIY project as Metro Parent teams up with i3 Detroit for some crafty good times!
Ferndale, MI – i3 Detroit, Metro Detroit’s premiere community hackerspace, will be recognizing its one year anniversary at its Ferndale location with a public celebration and ceremony today, April 9th, 2011 at 6 pm.
The 8,000 square-foot workshop has provided an ideal location for hosting classes and events for the community. Events held in the last year include introductions to welding, metal-casting, air brush, soldering, painting and even how to make home-brew soda.
The new location has also allowed its members to work on larger-scale projects using more advanced equipment. The space now boasts a growing wood and machine shop, a fabrication lab with access to laser and vinyl cutters, a chemistry lab, a bicycle repair area, an electronics room and a craft room, as well as other areas that encourage collaboration and creativity.
The event is open to the public with tool and project demonstrations.
Ferndale, MI 48220

The Great Global Hackerspace Challenge is on!
i3Detroit is a hackerspace in Metro Detroit. We are participating in this year’s challenge. Help us think up, build, and test an invention to help teachers overcome a common educational challenge, no matter how big or small, focused or general.
If you have an idea that can help educators and are interested in helping us, please reach out: email@example.com
If you are a teacher or educator and would like to help, but don’t have the time to reach out, you can still contribute! Take five minutes and fill out this brief survey. If you can give us even a little insight into the challenges and success stories you experience as a teacher, we’d be quite grateful.
