About Open Lab Idaho

Open Lab Idaho is a community makerspace which promotes creative, technological, and educational collaboration by hackers, computer geeks, engineers, circuit benders, crafters, tinkers, programmers, and artists.

Please note that when we say "hacker," we mean someone that hacks electronics and machines to expand or change their original functionality (not someone who illegally and unethically hacks computer systems).

The purpose of Open Lab Idaho is to:

  • Grow into a dedicated physical space to facilitate and promote creative, technological, and educational collaboration by all types of computer enthusiasts so that they can gather and share ideas, knowledge, equipment, and opinions in a friendly atmosphere.
  • Provide a community where members and community supporters can collaborate on projects, discuss and share ideas, and share resources.
  • Provide education to the community through classes and outreach events.
