SYN Shop is a hackerspace serving the Las Vegas Valley in Nevada. It is a space for sharing, creation, collaboration, research, development, mentoring, and of course, learning. Our motto is: “Let’s make stuff awesome!”

Who We Are

We are hackers, makers, artists, innovators, inventors, people of knowledge, and people who want to learn. We are people who take things apart to see how they work. We design the new because it has not been done before, and we reinvent what has already been done for the challenge of doing it ourselves. We’re here to discover the unknown, to teach others, and to put our mark on the world by helping others. We’re here to form a community of people who come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.

Who We Are Not

We may be “hackers”, but we are “hackers” in the same sense as Steve Wozniak or Dean Kamen are. We’re not here to break into your ex’s cell phone/computer/automobile, etc.. We’re not the people who attack and deface web sites and steal people’s credit cards or identities. In fact, many of us work in the very industries which protect against such people.
