Akron Makerspace (formerly syn/hak)


Akron Makerspace (formerly SYN/HAK) is a 501(c)3 charity located in downtown Akron that was founded by Chris, Torrie, Devin and myself since 2012 and I take the formation, and development of the organization very seriously as it is my way of giving back to the local community I live in.
