Interlock is a non-profit organization that provides space for its members and the local community to develop and share their interests in science, technology, art, and culture.

Interlock Rochester is a 501(c)3 non-profit Hackerspace whose goal is to provide a physical space and community to its members and the public at large. We provide workshops, classes, and a community of hackers with a wide range of interests: 3D Printing, information security, electronics, micro-controllers, laser cutting, radios, programming, networking, and much more that falls on the geek spectrum.

Interlock’s space consists of a variety of rooms for different purposes. A workshop room for metal and wood working, two electronics benches for soldering and electronics projects, a true radio shack with radio equipment, spectrum analyzer, ham radio gear as well as a presentation room with AV equipment for presentations and workshops. Interlock is run based on members support but is open to the public for all of its community events. Membership is never required to attend.

Interlock began in October of 2009 when a small group of like-minded technologists saw the need for a common work and play space for Rochester’s vast number of talented engineers, designers, and artists. The group was officially incorporated on December 1st, 2009.
