Our Beginning

Inspired by the global hackerspace movement and the lack of technology-related play and creativity in the classroom, Kids Hack Day is a means of closing the gap between education and technological creativity. We aim to revolutionize how we immerse children in emerging technologies.

Kids Hack Day is a 1-day event format where children and adults come together to "hack" and make new uses of every day items and new technologies.  

The idea sprung out of a first series of workshops run by lead instigator and former TEDxStockholm organizer Carl Bärstad under the name Hackerspace In A Box as an attempt to strengthen the collaboration between schools and local hackerspaces in the region.
