IXR is a new makerspace at the Jersey Shore, located at the InfoAge Science and History Learning Center in Wall, NJ (at the former Camp Evans). We are an open collective of geeks, artists, and techie-creative-types who come together to share tools, resources, knowledge, and ideas.
IXR’s mission is to help lower the barriers to invention, creativity, and innovation - by providing access to resources, equipment, and community - that an individual maker may not have otherwise.
We embrace the sharing of ideas and innovation, and that includes open source hardware and software. We also plan to host workshops, open to the public, on a myriad of topics - from basic electronics, to artisan soap making.
Our relationship with InfoAge allows us to have a space at very low cost, and gives us access to use meeting rooms and halls for holding workshops or special events. In return, we have the opportunity to help InfoAge grow as a learning center and museum by contributing to it’s exhibits. Another benefit to being an InfoAge member organization is the synergy we have with other organizations at InfoAge, such as MARCH (Mid-Atlantic Retro Computing Hobbyists), Ocean-Monmouth Amateur Radio Club, NJ Antique Radio Club, and more.
