Our Focus Areas ?

We are a nonprofit makerspace that delve into many areas of interest whether it be 3D printing, cosplay and wearable technology, or botany.
No matter your curiousity our makerspace is sure to have something to pique your interest and if not we follow a "do-ocracy." Make it. Do it. If you see a need that could be filled, make it happen (within reason of course).
Many of our labs exist because of this rule. Labs that could exist with some "elbow grease" Music Technology? Glass Blowing? Photography?
Can your space exist? Ask does it fit our focus areas.

We focus on the following areas:

  • Education in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics)
  • Pre-incubator space to develop your next product/service and get you a step closer to entrepreneurship
  • Recreational exploration, development, and creation in STEAM
  • Open Source contribution and being the ultimate Hack-able Space
