Encourage technological creativity and community by enabling people to use tools, to learn by making things and to share knowledge.
MakerSpace Charlotte is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community facility where students, makers, programmers, scientists, engineers and creative minds have access to equipment and building space for a supportive shared learning experience. To help fund the organization and our activities, we offer monthly memberships to individuals and groups within the Charlotte community. For students and low-income individuals, we offer discounted rates.
For the community at large, we host weekly and monthly community outreach events where the public can tour our facility, learn how to use tools, receive advice on projects that they are working, and gain inspiration and ideas for projects of their own. We also allow third parties (like a local high school robotics team, another charitable organization, or a school) to use our facilities for projects requiring the use of our equipment).
To expand interest in the “maker movement” we are often invited to exhibit at local schools, libraries, colleges, and businesses where we demonstrate various projects, answer questions, and provide hands on activities where attendees can sit down and make something with their own hands.
Members of the MakerSpace have knowledge on a broad spectrum of topics. Individuals may be able to help you if you wish to Kickstart a project or need help moving your project forward.
