Tech Shop Opens Its Sixth US Location In Austin TX
Hey Texans, your state just got a whole lot Make-ier. Our friends at Tech Shop, who already have five locations (three in California, one in North Carolina, and one in Michigan) are about to launch their sixth location. The Round Rock, TX location, just north of Austin, features 17,000 square feet of tools and learning spaces for members to explore their brilliant ideas. Tech Shop and MakerBot have a great history together. In fact, that’s a picture of three of our staff members and a MakerBot Replicator at a Tech Shop above.
Here’s some background information if you’re not familiar with this cool company.
TechShop is a do-it-yourself workshop, sort of like a fitness club, that offers its members access to a complete range of tools and equipment, software, classes, personal coaching, and access to other creative people so you can build the things you have always wanted to make. Membership is about $125 a month, and classes start at around $50. They currently have over 5,000 active members system-wide.
The TechShop team is throwing a TechShop Austin-Round Rock Pre-Opening Party this Friday and Saturday, and they invite everyone in the Austin and Round Rock area who is interested in making things to attend.
Several awesome companies have been formed inside Tech Shop locations, and it is exciting to see them growing into a whole new region. If you want to get in on this free event tonight and learn more about Tech Shop, head over to their page.
