After all items have been presented, items/participants and repairers move to Zoom breakout rooms to implement the tips and hopefully, fix the items. (We are happy to set up language-specific Zoom breakout rooms โ€“ just ask!)

The next world-wide Intergalactic Zoom Fixit Clinic is this Saturday Jan 15: itโ€™s Zoom hosted from Ontario, Canada but anyone anywhere in the world is welcome to Zoom in. Bring your community or organizationโ€™s broken things for repair, help fix, or just observe. (LinkedIn: )

Interested? There are different sign-up links for items and repairers:

-Items: Do you have something broken? Register the item at

-Repairers: Are you a repairer who wants to help fix? Or an aspiring repairer who wants to just observe? RSVP at

Looking forward to seeing you there (virtually, that is!) -Peter
