It is a membership-driven collaborative space. A place where people can access and utilize tools and equipment too cost prohibitive to keep in their garage like laser cutters and 3D printers; a place to learn or practice trades like wood and metal working, or to get involved with electronics or software.
The city’s latest “maker space,” opened it’s doors Friday morning and will continue the celebration Saturday with a 24-hour “hackathon.”
Participants have 24 hours to “make something that does anything, or anything that does something, from scratch.”
There is $1,000 in prize money up for grabs!
