What is a Makerspace?

A Makerspace is a place to go to get the training, tools, and camaraderie to start turning ideas into physical things. Basically, we make stuff in the space.

Where is the MakerSpace?

The MakerSpace is downstairs across from Web Alley next to the computer classroom.

For students:

Classes are free!

They are advertised in our monthly newsletter and at the bottom of this page.They are taught by an instructor familiar with the topic of the class and involve some of the equipment within the MakerSpace. Information on what is necessary for class will be posted in the class advertisement.

For teachers:

We are looking for people with various MakerSpace-type skills to volunteer as instructors in our MakerSpace as much or as little as will fit into their very busy schedules.

We are hoping local makers will be able to lend their skills to help us grow the maker community in Missoula.We can offer you access to some cool tools and small classes filled with enthusiastic learners.

What's in the MakerSpace?

We have work stations with the following equipment:
