San Diego Fixit Clinic

June 18, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

We have been all too accustomed to the throw away lifestyle. If something doesn’t work, throw it out and buy a new one. Because of this behavior our landfills are filling at a rapid rate and electronic waste has become the one of the largest pollution generators. So why not learn how to fix it?!

Bring your broken, non-functioning things: electronics, appliances, computers, toys, bicycles, clothes, etc. for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. We’ll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you disassemble and troubleshoot your item. Whether we fix it or not, you’ll learn more about how it was manufactured and how it worked. This is a family-friendly event: children are heartily invited!

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

The Central Library is located across the street from EcoVerse/Jing Si Books & Café and they do provide parking for 2 hours with validations. It will be $1.25 per 20 minutes after the 2 hrs.

Otherwise, there may be parking available on the streets.

We are one block from the Blue/Orange Line at Park and Market and several Bus options close by.

What can I bring to the event?

Please bring one item that needs to repaired and keep in mind we will try our best to solve the problem but not every case is a success.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Please contact sdfixitclinic@gmail.com for any questions

How can I volunteer to be a coach at the San Diego Fixit Clinics?

Please email us at sdfixitclinic@gmail.com if you are interested in volunteering for our clinics.

Does this cost money?

No, this is a free event but please keep in mind this is not a free drop off and fix event. This event is hands-on for people that would like learn how to fix their items themselves with the help of our awesome Coaches. It would be great if you could bring your own supplies, but we will have some to share.

There would be costs involved if your item needs additional or replacement parts. We may have some spare parts but it is the responsibility of the attendee to purchase and bring necessary parts the day of the event

Will you accept walk-ins?

If time permits we will take walk-ins. It really depends on how quickly we can repair the items of the registered attendees.

Do you take donations of tools and supplies?

Oh boy do we, if you have any old tools you don’t need please bring them into to the next Fixit Clinic and/or email us at sdfixitclinic@gmail.com to arrange drop off locations.
