The Nelson Tech Club (NTC) at the Nelson & District Youth Centre is a hackerspace, makerspace and meeting space all rolled into one. It is also a growing independent initiative to nurture technology advancement within the local community. Hackerspaces are creative outlets which cater to the curiosities of the enthusiasts and the skilled alike. It’s a place to talk about technology with people who understand what you are talking about.
Bring in your projects, you too can participate! Their goal is to provide resources and share knowledge. The NTC functions as a centre for peer learning and skill sharing in the form of weekly meetups, online resources, workshops, presentations and collaborative group projects.
