TinkerSpace by TinkerHub.

TinkerSpace would be the first Hub of its kind where anyone could walk in and learn exponential technologies and coding for free. The space is set up and run by startup entrepreneurs and technologists from the state who have created a great future through learning and building technology.

Here, we aim to provide access to the latest technologies & futuristic skills through a community-owned network. We aspire to break the existing barriers to learning and seek to reach out to different strata of the society. We will create abundant opportunities for professional networking and mentoring to foster innovation and maker culture among learners. The core idea is to build the irreplaceable skill of seeking life-long among the younger generation.
