TechShop Pittsburgh had their open house tonight, and I took my two boys. It was packed, but they seemed to enjoy it. It looks like they still have a lot of items to move into the shop, but I was definitely geeking out on what was there already.
Plus, they were letting people do some MIG welding. My boys suited up and tried it out.
I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
Also, THEY LOWERED THE AGE LIMITS AGAIN. Mark Hatch, the CEO, told me that kids as young as 8 are allowed into certain areas of the workshop. This is fantastic! It doesn’t look like they updated the policy on their website yet, however.
And here are some pictures of the equipment that Zachary took. He also spent a few minutes talking to Jim Newton, the founder of TechShop.
