What we're about

Decatur Makers is a welcoming, family-friendly community of inquisitive, motivated people who work together in a safe environment to discover, understand, design and create interesting things. We do host activities for children, but please note that any children present at a Meetup must be supervised by a parent or guardian.

We also have a google group and are on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram which we use to communicate and discuss activities. More info (and others ways to support us) here (http://decaturmakers.org/).

Family Build Night

Needs a location

Family Build Night is geared towards our littlest makers, age 6-10 years old and their families and we provide 2-3 different hands-on STEAM activities.

We're excited to be back in-person! Masks are required for everyone, regardless of your vaxx status. And we will be hosting this event outside, so please dress for the weather!

All project supplies are free, but donations are welcome.

This is a drop-in event. Come for the whole time or just a bit. Bring your dinner and hang out if that helps you get here!

Parents/Guardians must stay at Decatur Makers with their kiddos. It is FAMILY Build night after all.

We are now back to hosting IN-PERSON open build nights on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Wednesdays of the month at 7-9 PM!

Masks are optional for this event.

We will be monitoring the number of makers inside the Space, and reserve the right to restrict access and/or to ask attendees to disperse during the event. Thank you for your patience should you need to wait a few minutes for a tour.

Open Build Night is a great time to bring questions about Decatur Makers, tour our makerspace, and a chance meet others who have the same passion.

If you would like to work on a project, please let us know some details beforehand by registering for the event. Certain tools and pieces of equipment are restricted for use and required the assistance of a trained volunteer. We endeavor to have volunteers available, but it is not always possible to work on or complete all projects.

This is for makers of all ages, skill sets, and interests.

We look forward to seeing you there!
