Group Description

This list is to connect those passionate about forming a Hackerspace in Hayward, Hayhackers. We believe that having a Hackerspace will improve our city greatly. It will bring avenues of innovation and creativity to our citizens.
A Hackerspace is a building (a community) where people meet together regularly to imagine, design, build, invent, and create anything new. The building houses tools and space for people to build their inventions. People give workshops teaching people of all ages how to use the tools and computer programming, electronics, soldering, metal work, woodwork, textile work etc within the building.
At this point according to Hackerspace.org there are no Hackerspaces in our city of Hayward. Having one will bring together all the geeks, nerds, artists, hands on machinists and inventors in our city as well as provide an educational and creative outlet for some of the troubled youths in our area and make Hayward a place where new inventions are born. With such a place, new businesses and companies would be attracted to our city as a place to live, work and be educated.
We are envisioning a place for creative adults to build their dream inventions,college students to meet other inventive students, high school students to prepare for college and work skills,children to participate in HackerScouts and families that will learn and build together.
Our vision is to transform one of Mission Blvd's out of business empty car lots into a Hackerspace where bright minds meet and invent. We are absolutely dedicated in the education of children and changing the community of Hayward to a better place to live, work, and learn.

Please join us in helping us build a Hackerspace in Hayward and make it a better place in which to live, work and learn. Perhaps we can turn Hayward into a mini Silicon Valley.
