Let's bring back manufacturing and rebuild small towns with community maker/hackerspaces, open source hardware/software startups, community projects, classrooms, green spaces, and inspire collaboration between local businessess, educators, students, startups, entrepreneurs, investors, retired machinists, steel workers and everyone in between. Its time to take a stand, dream big, invent, innovate, and bring back a strong middle class! We are starting our first maker space in Vandergrift and are looking for makers, hackers, inventors, members, volunteers, teachers, skilled laborers, donated equipment, donations, and community support.
