If F.A.O. Schwartz is a playground for kids, then Pumping Station: One is the playground for kids at heart. PS: One is a a hackerspace where the community gets to decide what types of tools and resources to include. Drill presses, 3D printers, electron microscopes, welding gear, and IT equipment are all available. PS: One is a community first and a “space” second. It is a 180+-member collective of carpenters, metal workers, cyclists, tailors/seamstresses, web developers, micro-brewers, game developers, musicians, car enthusiasts, college professors, men, women, and above all else, people obsessed with the pursuit of knowledge.
