Come and make stuff with your dad for GeekDad Father's Day at TechShop San Jose! We have several amazing workshops lined up for the day.

Steampunk LED Ties

Bring a tie and we'll show you how to add LEDs to it and add a bit of steampunk flare!

Build and Fly a Folding-Wing Glider

With wings folded back, these gliders rocket into the air using a hand-held rubber band catapult. At the apogee, the wings pop out for a gentle glide down. This glider has a fun history which you can become a part of, as you cut the parts on the laser cutter (and customize the wing) and build the glider from scratch. Once done, we'll head down to a local field for some high flying fun. All parts are included in the fee and you'll go home with a neat glider that can be used many more times.

Pewter Drop Casting: Cuff-Links Edition

In this workshop, you'll create a pair of pewter drop casted cuff-links with your own custom/personal image or initials.
