Makerspace: A fun and welcoming place to come together and bring fantastic creations to life. Creations like robots, catapults, jewelry, clothing, arts of all different kinds, 3D printers, things made from 3D printers, flying machines, electronics, and many more.
This is a meetup to generate interest in a Broomfield Makerspace. Makerspaces typically have a plethora of tools that are available to members to use when making their projects, like 3D printers, saws, mills, drills, lathes, looms, kilns, welders, screen printers, laser cutters, and soldering irons, among others.
The communities built around Makerspaces are typically filled with makers with many different fields of expertise. That expertise is shared among the members, and people are often willing to help out if anyone gets stuck on their project.
Makerspaces also offer classes on a wide variety of topics such as soldering, welding, sewing, jewelry-making, programming, and many others. Makers themselves come in many shapes and sizes, and makers may not even know they are makers until they are given the opportunity to create something.
Lots of Makerspaces are home to entrepreneurs who are starting their own businesses creating brand new products. The community will include makers from all ages and capabilities, all sharing the common goal of wanting to have fun and make things.
There is still much hard work to do, but with the help of this group, it will be here soon. Until then, let's spread the word, get excited, and start making things.
