What goes on at a Makerspace?

  • On any given day you might have people woodworking, someone welding, a couple of programmers debugging code, someone at the bench soldering, and others socializing or just watching videos on the projector screen.
  • There are also regular meetings to address club logistics and make decisions that affect our members and the space. All members can, and are encouraged to, participate in this process.
  • Occasionally, members put on courses or clinics on topics they have some ability in.
