Akron Hackerspace SYN/HAK offers great environment for like minded folks

Namaste! Good Morning,

Founding members of the Akron Hackerspace SYN/HAK , which provides space for like minded folk to share ideas about technology , art and science. The group held an open house on Saturday to showcase its modest quarters at 21 W North St. in Akron.

Akron Hackerspace Group offers free equipment and instrument for the doers and techies of just about any field in computer, technology, digital art, electronic art, soldering, wood working , metal working, sewing and much more .



The emphasis is on spreading the word about , well, anything from programming Arduinos, or small computers, to making stained-glass windows, with a good does of neighborliness feeling.

The organization’s name comes from the words “synchronization” and “hacker.” .One of the founding member says “Our first rule is, ‘Be excellent to others,’ ” .

SYN/HAK is a community space , so if participants leave a project laying around, others may paint it, disassemble it, move it or incorporate it into thire own work. Community also does not do work for hire, even though many of their members are professionals who could fix computers or install mufflers. The emphasis is on learning, not making money. You don’t have to pay anything to stop in when the space is open, which is 7 to 10 p.m. Tuesday, 6 to 10 p.m. Wednesday and noon to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Good Work SYN/HAK.
