What we're about

Benicia Makerspace is a place where people come together to collaborate, invent, prototype and test new ideas using state of the art equipment. Our space is like a community shop where individuals and entrepreneurs can come together to make things, use shared equipment, learn new skills, and incubate new business ideas. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, 3D printing, electric vehicles, alternative energy, robotics, arduino, and raspberry pi. The Meet-Up is open to experienced makers as well as people who are interested and want to learn.
