Hack Hitchin

Welcome to Hitchin Hackspace

Hitchin Hackspace is a community organisation devoted to providing everyone with a place to explore all kinds of creative technologies and crafts.

If you’re not used to it, don’t be put off by the word Hack – as far as we’re concerned, Hacking is creating, improving, solving problems and learning new, (often pointless, occasionally quite useful, always fun) skills. This sort of hacking doesn’t involve stealing Pentagon secrets (Matthew Broderick has a lot to answer for!), or stealing credit card details.

So far, we’ve done fun stuff like building bat detectors, lego vehicles you drive with your iPad, and even a 3 foot balancing robot.

So that’s us – if you’re interested in getting involved with any of the projects that we’ve got on, if you’ve got an idea for a killer project that you’d like to share, or even if you want to come along and try your hand at something new, why not get in touch?

We meet up twice a month – there’s a social night and a build night. See our contacts page for where we meet, and come along to say hello.

Make. Craft. Invent. Learn.

Update 6 Jan ’14: Build nights are now every Monday from 7:30pm at the Pavilion on Ransom’s Rec, Hitchin

Future talk topics are listed here.
