You are invited to the very first San Francisco Fix - It Clinic!!!

Fix-It Clinics are are taking place all over the world....and now we have one in San Francisco!!!

Bring in your broken electronics, small appliances, toys, etc to receive guidance from Fix - It Coaches. You will learn how to disassemble, diagnose, and hopefully fix the problem and go home with a working item.

San Francisco Fix-It Clinic
Sunday, April 7, 11:00am - 2:00pm
Richmond District Neighborhood Center
741 30th Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94121

Everyone (middle-school aged children and older) is encouraged to attend.

Things to bring:

Your non-working item (carry-in only)

Bonus if you can also bring the following:

Any tools you already own that might be helpful
Any knowledge or advance research you have done on the issue
Boxes, bags and/or small containers to carry away parts. Muffin tins are great for holding tiny bits and pieces while you work.

Whether you fix your item or not, you will learn more about how your item was manufactured and how things work. By empowering people to learn more about how to fix broken items and reduce ambivalence about trying to do so, we hope to reduce the amount of waste going to landfills.
