$125 for a Two-Month Workshop Membership and Two JumpStart Classes (Up to $348 Value)

The workshop membership gives members time to turn specs into reality within a 20,000-square-foot facility filled with tools ranging from laser cutters and soldering stations to embroidery machines and 3-D modeling software. During JumpStart classes, students can tackle basics in areas such as electronics, woodshop, metalworking, and sewing. Though TechShop RDU sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

TechShop RDU

Once 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. The 20,000-square-foot smorgasbord of inventive creativity beckons people of all skill levels to its DIY confines, where members can wield tools not found in most private workshops, slicing through steel with a plasma cutter or accessing 3-D design software to finally realize the goal of crawling inside the Internet. Hands-on classes jump-start creative juices, introducing students to vocational skills including welding, soldering, and woodworking. Neophyte inventors aged 12–17 are welcome but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to ensure they don't break physics.
