We are a Makerspace located at iGate Innovation Hub in Livermore, CA. Members of our space use our equipment to work on personal or professional projects, take and teach classes about building and programing, and gather together to work on individual and group projects. We focus on robotics and our space includes metal and wood working, electronics, sewing machines and sergers, a 3-D printer, and a laser cutter. Planned future equipment includes CNC mills, vacuum forms, a robot pond, a model garden/farm, fabric dyeing, and more robots. We are a family friendly facility and try to offer fun learning experiences for our kids, opportunities for parents and children to work and learn together, and space for kids to work independently while their parents do the same.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
