We are a 501c3 Educational Organization
Our space is a private and secure work space where creativity and ingenuity may reach critical levels. This reaction chamber holds 2400 sq ft of space to share. Within our containment walls holds...
for techies, tinkerers, and free thinkers.
Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.
We fall under the umbrella of the hackerspace and maker movements. While some of our members are involved in the information security industry, you won't have any fear of getting your phone or computer hacked by visiting our space. The hacking we do creative, not destructive. When we refer to hacking, we mean either the reporposing or modding of a commercial product, or the DIY hacking together of a project.
"A hackerspace is a community-operated workspace where people with common interests, often in computers, technology, science, digital art or electronic art, can meet, socialise and/or collaborate." "Hackerspaces can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops and/or studios where hackers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things." "hackerspaces function as centers for peer learning and knowledge sharing, in the form of workshops, presentations, and lectures. They usually also offer social activities for their members, such as game nights and parties. They typically provide space for members to work on their individual projects, or to collaborate on group projects with other members."
Members have keys and 24/7 access to the space, but everyone is always welcome to visit the space when its open. If you would like to check us out or have a project you would like to bring in to work on, check the callender for schedualed events that the space would be open for, or ask on the forums if a member would open it up for you. Generally, we are open every week on Tuesdays and Sundays from 7pm till the last member leaves.
