Trainings

In our machine trainings, we show you how you can use the machines at Happylab to realize your own projects. This includes correct preparation of the file, the workflow on the machine and safety instructions so you can start right away without any prior knowledge. For most of the machines at Happylab, you first have to complete the respective training before you can work on the machine.

Training courses take place several times a week at Happylab - for Happylab members these are free or can be booked at reduced prices. Alternatively, you can book private individual trainings with our lab managers or complete online tests in the Happylab Members Portal (access only for members!).

For the use of the metal and woodworking shop, a General Safety Instruction (GSI) is mandatory.

Consulting hour

You have an idea but no plan where to start? You've already attended a machine training, but are too afraid to work on the machine alone? In the last few years we've already helped realize many projects and product ideas and are happy to support you with our expertise on digital manufacturing technologies and rapid prototyping!

In a joint brainstorming session, we will address the following questions, among others:

→ Which machine is best suited for my project?

→ What do I have to pay attention to when choosing a material?

→ What are the next steps?

A consulting session with our lab managers takes about an hour and gives you a good overview of the steps you need to take to implement your project on our machines yourself. Cost: € 50 per hour

SUmmer camp for Kids

"Do it yourself" - this is the motto under which summer camps for children from 8 to 14 years old take place in our Happylab!

Summer Holiday program for kids (Age 8 - 14)

Dates for 2024: 22.07.24 - 26.07.24 + 05.08.24 - 09.08.24

This exciting summer week at Happylab is all about "Do it yourself". During the week-long summer camps, the children become real makers themselves and get to know our makerspace and all its equipment. There are two themed weeks: "3D printing, electronics and textile design" and "Calliope mini - build and program your robot"

Every day, a new project is tackled and together we screw, solder, plot and tinker. The children can also let off steam creatively at the same time. In the afternoon, it's off to the park, the museum or a fun park - depending on their mood and the weather.
