About

Imagine, collaborate and create something awesome.

Makerspace is an interactive community-oriented space where you can create and learn skills using a variety of tools and materials. Use your own creativity as you explore science, technology and engineering principles! Get inspired to be a maker. Play, build, imagine, adapt, modify, work together and have fun.

Conversation Stations

As we adapt to new approaches to hands on education, please visit one of our two engagement stations located in the Garage and Classroom. Talk to staff as they demonstrate cutting edge technology or traditional tools. Learn the basics of laser engraving, 3d printing, sewing, carpentry or illustration. Come say “hi” and see what the team is making today.

3D Printing Mask Accessories

Watch time-lapses of 3 mask accessories 3d printed in our Makerspace Gallery. The text under each video describes the model and its use so you can download and print your own 3d mask accessories! The original modeler’s information is also included so you can download and print them as well.

Maker’s Physically Distanced Programs

Until we can be hands on educators again, we are going to do the next best thing. Through using a repurposed security camera, a monitor and a microphone, our staff will be assisting visitors through our new Physically Distanced Maker Programs. During our programs you can expect a safe, clean space with limited capacity and time to tinker with a hands-on activity.
