Mission

“Exploration is the engine that drives innovation. Innovation drives economic growth. So let’s all go exploring.” -Edith Widder

Our mission:

to provide a friendly, affordable space and the tools for makers, creatives, programmers, scientists, kids, parents, and learners of all ages to collaborate, hack, invent, share, create, make and do. We are dedicated to sharing knowledge, building relationships, and fostering entrepreneurship, especially in the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (S.T.E.A.M.).

We believe the world is a better place as a participatory sport. Being creative, the act of creating and making, is fundamental to what it means to be human.

All ages are welcome, but children must be supervised.
MakerLab NW is all volunteer-run, and is a labor of love.

You can find more information about our monthly meetings on our MakerLab NW group on meetup.com or join our Facebook Group.
