After we hosted Kids Hack Day Hyper Island a lot of people came to us to ask about Kids Hack Day Club and other events. We noticed a lot of parents, educators and curious grown ups asking about event they could attend as well. Since Kids Hack Day was mainly focused on the younger ones, we decide to create a special event, more adult-oriented.
After Hyper Island bought Quirkbot kits for prototyping and development of projects, students organized a Kids Hack Day with it. I joined the event with my friend Carl Bärstad as volunteer and consultant both training the students and helping to design the space.
Following the success of 2014’s Summer Camp, we decided to go further and establish a Kids Hack Day Club that ran initially from Makerspark’s basement, then moved to a few rooms at Stadsgården and finally to Stockholm Makerspace, in 2016.
