As most of you know, I volunteer at the CabFabLab. It's a non-profit workshop in The Hague where visitors can use high tech equipment at cost. It sounds frivolous, but people make stuff here that really makes a difference. People make art, but also prototypes. One guy made a tool so that elderly people with shaky hands can still open those nice individual cups that peanut butter and coffee milk come in.

It has a laser cutter, 3D printer, vinyl cutter and more cool stuff. Basically, they buy expensive machinery to make it available to everyone to make whatever think think will improve their life. They're currently looking for volunteers, so I thought I'd see if any of you were interested. There's a volunteer discount, it looks cool on your CV and you learn how to use all this machinery. They need about eight hours a week minimum, but you can split it into two.

Sounds like loads of fun! I'd have to consult with my "work coach" though.

As I understand it, it's fine just as long as you can quit right away and it doesn't interfere with looking for a job.
