AHA has added Friday public hours from 2-10PM! Now you can get your DIY fix even more days of the week.
Public hours are staffed by volunteers and subject to change, so be sure to check back here frequently for the latest hours.
Heads up: we’ll be closed to the public for a special event this Saturday, 7/22! Our normal public hours will resume next Thursday.
Stop by All Hands Active on Friday June 16th for Ann Arbor Tech Trek!
Mini Lasers, Tube Clocks, Cardboard CNC machines, Electric Race Cars, and Light field displays are just some of the awesome things you’ll get to experience at AHA when our members demonstrate their projects and Backyard Brains shows off their research.
Haven’t been to the shop in a bit? We’d love to give you a tours of our newly expanded location just below Afternoon Delight at 255 E. Liberty St.
These are the current candidates for board membership for the April election. Please take some time to get to know them! Be sure to stop down and chat with them during our election night potluck at 7pm on April 20th. We’ll be choosing 3 of them to fill the board.
Elections for the next Board of Directors are coming up! Beginning today is the nomination period for prospective Directors. We are looking to fill three of our Board positions during this election (see the list of incumbents below).
We are an official 501(c)(3) and our current goals are to attract new members, interesting projects and exciting workshops to the new space. We need to build the community of makers and hackers that use our workshop. If you think you can help us achieve this very important objective, please consider running for the Board of Directors! A Director’s term is one year long.
Starting 2/23, All Hands Active will be opening at 2pm on Thursdays. Stop by and get a tour! Be sure to say “Hello” to our volunteer Henry. He’ll be staffing AHA on Thursday Afternoon.
Brian will continue on as the host of Thursday “Build Night”. Alex and Tyler will continue to staff Saturday.
Yesterday evening we opened a new section of the space setup as a classroom.
Thanks to everyone that helped make this happen. The space can be used immediately classes will start to be held on this side of the hall immediately. Cleanup and finishing work will continue over the next few weeks. Give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or feedback about the new space.
Our new electronics work bench and shelving is now available for use! This new area provides 6 sq ft of additional table space, more shelving and we’ve got a few more cabinets on the way. Thank you to everyone that helped make this possible!
Heads up! We will be closed on the 24th and 31st due to the holidays, but otherwise open to the public during our normal Thursday/Saturday schedule (see the right sidebar).
Stay awesome, stay warm, and we hope your New Year is filled with all sorts of wonderful things to learn and make.
