Somerville is part of the Northeast region.

Our work in Somerville is developing in partnership with Parts and Crafts. Somerville is also home to Sprout and the Boston-area Dorkbot chapter.

The Public Laboratory chapter in Somerville is currently hosted out of the p.irateship, a coworking and hacking space at 438 Somerville Ave -- but folks have also held events at or near Parts and Crafts (above).

If you are in the Boston area, consider joining the local PLOTS mailing list and getting involved in local work and events:

We occasionally have meetups at the Pirateship, so get in touch on the mailing list if you're interested in participating in or organizing a local meetup.

At Parts & Crafts, we've been doing occasional workshops building spectrometers, infrared cameras, such as the one used to take this photograph:

Where is the p.irateship?

See for a map, the photo below for the front of the building, and for some nonsense which may or may not be useful.
