What You'll Get


Invention is 10% inspiration, 85% perspiration, 10% determination, 10% inspiration, and 10% determination. Use all 125% of your inventing abilities with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a two-month membership and six hours of classes at TechShop RDU (a $378 value).

TechShop RDU is a 20,000-square-foot smorgasbord of inventive creativity and tools for people of all skill levels. The DIY workshop offers dozens of different classes covering everything from metal-welding to silk-screening to robot-building and laser engraving. The safety and basic usage classes will get you up to date on a specific tool or machine. Terrify tailors everywhere by learning how to fix and enhance your own clothes with a sewing or embroidery class. Other classes include laser cutting and etching, aluminum casting, and precision vector cutting of printed material from a digital file. The two-month membership allows for unlimited access to TechShop RDU's facilities, so you can breathe new life into old projects with tools not found in most private workshops. The TechShop includes full wood-working and metal shops, with milling machines, lathes, and a 5'x8' CNC ShopBot router. Neophyte inventors age 12–17 are welcome as well, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to ensure they don't break physics.

Recently featured on WBTV for sending a weather balloon built out of spare parts into outer space, Techshop RDU has a supportive community of inventors, artists, technicians, and alchemists who are all excited about their next big idea, creating an environment limited only by the imagination.
