Our Makerspace is a collaborative environment where people of all ages and skill levels can work on a variety of projects and activities. We provide the tools, both technical and non-technical, to use for anything from programming an Arduino to stamping custom jewelry. Our goal is to allow users of our space the opportunity to create something out of nothing and explore their creativity.
