We are a vocational academy, a part of workforce development, AND a makerspace!
A place that teaches many different fundamental hands-on skills and practical knowledge through affordable and easy to understand classes. The classes are taught by those who have years of experience, and lean heavily toward the practical knowledge with minimal theory. We teach Advanced Manufacturing skills to the community, employees, students, teachers, and anyone else (over 14 years old) who wishes to learn.
But that's what we do on weekdays. Then every evening and on weekends we are a true makerspace....
A community workshop where our members and students can use these new skills to practice, make, fix, or build anything you desire. It's like a gym, but instead of exercise equipment and weights, we have all machines, tools, and staff to help you. They are there to teach you, guide you and help with your projects.
We are a place of learning, a business incubator, a co-working space, and a dream workshop all-in-one and open to all!
