„Makerspace“ in Landau - an open space and meeting point for those interested in technology
The club Zentrum für Technikkultur (ZTL) has created a space for tinkerers. There they can come together to work, experiment and develop ideas. A “makerspace” in the truest sense of the word. The term "makerspace" implies that the premises also contain workshops in order to create something new with the help of machines and tools that are often not available at home.
The ZTL is a young, registered and non-profit association in Landau. It was founded in 2019 by members of the Linux User Group, the local Freifunk groups, the Chaos Computer Club and the local radio amateurs. The aim is to offer people with a technical interest a platform on which they can exchange ideas and work on projects together. The association and its sponsors - WEPTECH elektronik GmbH, vancom GmbH & Co KG, Michael Münch Gewerbevermietung, Stadler + Schaaf Mess- und Regeltechnik GmbH, CATO Electronic Consulting and the Technologie Netzwerk Südpfalz - want to arouse interest in technology and technical jobs, especially among young people.
Due to the corona pandemic, the new location at Klaus-von-Klitzing-Straße 2 could unfortunately not be used for seminars or for open workshops so far. In spite of this, the association was not inactive, but has produced face visors with the help of its 3D printer and made them available to doctors, DRK and THW, for example. For this commitment and a new start after the crisis the Zentrum für Technikkultur has now received 5000 Euros, which the company APL made available for the municipal aid program “Miteinander in Landau”.
