ABOUT THE HATCH
For those of you that are new to us, The Hatch will be a Makerspace--essentially a shared studio. We will have a wood shop and metal shop, along with countless other “traditional” building and making resources with a major focus on combining those with the latest technology--such as microcontrollers and 3D printers. With a growing focus on design thinking, need for rapid prototyping, and STE(A)M education, we recognize the need for our diverse community to have the opportunity to come together, educate one another and collaborate, in order to create life changing innovations. Our members have already made some amazing creations as well as moves to advance the maker community here, even without a physical space. Athens has so many resources-- a top research university funneling talent into our town year after year, multi-million dollar tech companies, a rich start-up culture, a booming arts industry, and YOU. Please join us in making Athens a hub of innovation.
WHO WE ARE
The Hatch is a collection of professionals, artists, software and hardware developers, creators, teachers, thinkers, and doers that strive to educate, collaborate, and innovate. We have been working hard all year to build the Athens maker community with monthly hackathons, weekly happy hours, classes, exhibitions, and collaboration with many businesses and organizations in town. We are ready. It’s time to open our permanent space, and we need your help! Please get involved, volunteer, or donate.
