The project grew out of the Hacker Scouts youth hacking program that started out at the Ace Monster Toys hackerspace and has now become a program that's been replicated all across the country. Hacker Scouts used to be run out of Ace Monster Toys, but decided to start a new space to accommodate growth. After raising $37,000 in a successful kickstarter campaign in Oct. 2013, they got the space at 6036 Telegraph Ave. They held their first event in their new space on Oct. 27, 2013 and had a Grand Opening Party on Nov. 24, 2013.
Regular programming includes Oakland Open Lab every Sunday from 2-5 with free and at-cost projects for kids. Details are on their blog.
