St. Petersburg Makerspace

I took a tour of the St. Petersburg maker space today and was so impressed I joined immediately. I am looking forward to spending a lot of my time there working on new inventions and projects.

What is a makerspace? Also known as hackerspaces, hackspaces, and fablabs, makerspaces are creative, DIY places where people with common interests gather to create, invent, collaborate, and learn. In an open community lab, workbench, machine shop, or workshop environment, people share resources and knowledge. Makerspaces often have 3D printers and various fabrication tools, and related software, electronics, craft and hardware supplies, and more.

St. Pete Makers is part of a growing global makerspace movement that is based on collaboration. We provide an opportunity for creators to connect with each other and with the larger community.  We are a collection of builders, makers, and artists. We promote science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics by providing resources, teaching classes, and participating in events. Our members use our makerspace to work on projects, share ideas, and help each other create that which they have envisioned. Visit http://www.stpetemakers.org for more information.
