Get free training and support at Boston’s technology hub

Businesses and students in Boston can come to the town’s technology hub to learn more about the high-end equipment they can use or borrow for free.

The Boston Technology Hub by Onlincolnshire was officially launched last week, hosted by Boston College at its newly-opened £1.6 million Enterprise Zone.

The hub is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). 

The facility houses a desktop 3D printer which can make small plastic models using ASB or PLA plastic, a hand-held colour 3D scanner, and a high-precision laser cutter and engraver, which can be used to etch out high-precision designs.

Between 1pm and 4pm on Wednesday 13th November, the hub and its support team will offer training on the 3D printer, 3D scanner and the laser cutter and engraver – all of which can be used free of charge, with just a small initial cost to cover materials.

Sessions will be held every other Wednesday at the same time.

The Boston Technology Hub is open between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday, although equipment and rooms can be hired outside of these times.

The full address of the hub is Boston College, The Enterprise Zone, Rochford Campus, PE21 6JF.

Contact the hub on enterprise@boston.ac.uk or call 01205 365701 for more information.
