About Us

Who are we?
Makers gather here at the AHA! Shop. We take our world and play with it like legos. Mixing and matching recipes of life like a top chef with a picky client. A dash of electronics, a pinch of art, a scoop of biology and a MONSTER amount of awesome!

All Hands Active is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community organization. We want to make Ann Arbor smarter, and this is good for everyone! If you would like to financially support our mission, please get in touch with us at board@allhandsactive.org.

The wiki knows all! Check it for all kinds of lovely information like an Orientation page and a Wish List of tools and parts.
