Join us for a field trip to the San Jose Tech Shop! Attendees will travel as a group by bus to the downtown San Jose Tech Shop location for a tour, demos, and an informative Q&A session.

The TechShop is a playground for creativity, with something for everyone. Part fabrication and prototyping studio, part hacker space, part learning center, the TechShop offers access to over $ 1million worth of professional equipment and software. They also provide comprehensive instruction and expert staff to ensure you have a meaningful and rewarding experience. The facility offers laser cutters, plastics & electronics labs, machine shop, wood shop, metal working shop, textiles department, welding stations, and waterjet cutters. Members have open access to all design software as well, including Autodesk Desing Suite. Huge project areas with large work tables enable you to complete projects and collaborate with others easily. The TechShop offers membership at many levels-including just 1 month-do you have a prototype you need to complete? You can gather all you need and pay for one month to complete your prototype or project! They also offer discount student priced memberships as well.
