Together with Startuplab, Restarters Norway & Elkjøp we hosted Repair Café in Parken Bakeri. A total of 8 fixers helped fix a nerf-gun, an amplifier, a Luxo-lamp, a coffee grinder and much more. 

At a Repair Café, you can repair broken small electronics, such as phones, radios, or headphones, with volunteer "fixers" assisting you. It's good for the environment, and your wallet, and more educational than tossing it in the trash. Perhaps it will change how we appreciate and take care of our belongings.

The tools and equipment at the Hardwarelab came in handy.
