SD Fixit Clinic in Carlsbad
August 12 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm PDT
We’ve become too accustomed to the throw-away lifestyle. If something breaks, we toss it out and buy a new one. This behavior is filling our landfills at an alarming rate, and electronic waste is now one of the biggest sources of pollution. So why not learn how to fix things instead?!
Bring your broken, non-working items—electronics, appliances, computers, toys, bicycles, clothes, and more—for assessment, disassembly, and possible repair. We’ll provide workspace, specialty tools, and guidance to help you take apart and troubleshoot your item. Even if we can’t fix it, you’ll learn more about how it was made and works.
And that is not all. During this August 12th event, we will be hosting several booths and workshops on reuse, repair, and recycling with a Back to School Theme
• SD Fixit Clinic – Bring ONE ITEM to repair
• Craft Workshop: Repurpose fabric into pencil cases – Registration Required
• Recycling Stations: Batteries and Textbooks
• Bicycle Repair and Maintenance
This event is fun for the whole family, so bring your kids.
