New non-profit makerspace on the peninsula

Maker Nexus has been working since November to organize a new makerspace between Redwood City and Sunnyvale. We aim to open the doors May 1 of this year. We are adding members, negotiating a location, accumulating equipment, and soliciting donations and corporate partners.

Our mission is to provide education in woodworking, textiles, metalworking, and other vocational skills and hobby crafts, and promote the same in the community. We do this by providing a community makerspace that serves all experience levels from hobbyists to professionals. Our goal is to help each person improve their skills whether as STEAM/STEM teen, life enrichment, job skill acquisition, or new entrepreneur.

The Maker Nexus shop will be an excellent place to work on robotics!

Hi,

Are you a maker or a crafter? Have you ever wanted a place to make things? A woodshop, metalshop, a laser cutter? Better and bigger tools than you have at home? A place populated with other people making things? A place for your kids to get some hands-on maker experience? A place where you can learn to use these tools?

TechShop was such a place, but it closed its doors in November.

I'm part of a new non-profit organization working to open a new makerspace on the lower peninsula. We been planning this for 2 months and our plans are now public. We need to grow our membership to get the shop open.

I'm excited to be part of this new organization, and I think we can do a lot of good for the community. Join us and be part of the fun.

Have you ever wanted to make something but didn't know how? Didn't have the tools? Needed some help to get going?

Makerspaces are incredible places where a mix of artists, engineers, and hobbyists get together to work on their latest ideas. The multi disciplinary environment makes for creative solutions to the problems at hand.

We are a community group working to open a new makerspace on the mid-peninsula. Woodshop, metalshop, laser cutters, textiles, 3D printers, electronics, and more. Don't know how to use a tablesaw? Don't know how to work a 3D printer? Don't worry, we will have classes on all this, from beginner to expert.

Come to this event and meet others working on this vision. We plan to open the doors to our shop in June - there's a lot to be done. Join us and help craft a new innovation center for our community.

Square democratized credit card transactions and their first prototype was created in a makerspace. Who knows what revolutionary ideas will come from the people who join our makerspace.
