Open House

Freeside holds open houses on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, so that people can see what we have, discuss what we can help do, and meet interesting Freesiders and guests. We explain what Freeside is, review upcoming classes and other events, and briefly introduce ourselves. Then we give a tour of the space, mingle and talk shop.

Monthly Build-Out

Members get to flex their right to hack on the space infrastructure and hack Freeside itself into a collective vision. Non-members are welcome! We could always use extra hands for buildouts and are happy to show you around the space. Make sure to wear closed-toe shoes and fitted clothing, & be ready to get your hands dirty!


Freeside has a DIY Bio lab! This meetup will be for the collective discussion of bio lab usage and news in the DIY Bio world. In this meetup, we will: present something cool, cover lab safety and usage, plan projects, & talk about general bio topics and news.

Come to Freeside and geek out with us in the bio lab on the 2nd Monday of each month!
