The goal of MESH is to create a hackerspace in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. This is about supporting a growing maker and DIY community that we can all be a part of. Our makerspace is a social environment where makers can congregate to share their knowledge, learn and build things together.
We have a great meeting location at Swinburne University Wantirna campus.
Hopefully, as we grows we will become a center for the development of open source software and hardware. Our space is open to all people always having open membership. We want people from all walks of life to join. Just because you do not know anything about technology does not bar you from membership.
It will also be a place where members of the greater community can have access to technologies such as our two 3D printers and laser cutter.
The maker movement also creates a huge opportunity for disabled people. The huge range of programming languages, computer aided design, social media and access to knowledge gives physically disabled people the chance to take their full place in society.
