Open House Again! 2-6-2015, This First Friday - A Makerspace in Tallahassee WOW!
Making Awesome @ 1009 Commercial Dr. Inside The Railroad Square Art Park

So..... Right now we're accepting "Beta Members" until April 1st. We need members that will test the space and see what works, what doesn't, and what needs tweaking. We want potential members to understand that we're not 100% operational yet. We are collecting dues from these members, and we fully expect all of them to stay as full-time members after April 1st.

Here are some pictures I took on Thursday!

Thanks,
Richard Menasco

We're back! Thanks to our dedicated volunteers and our awesome landlord, we have a new home in the old Stereo Sales building in Railroad Square at 1009 Commercial Drive. There's still plenty of work to be done, but we're ready to open the doors and get back to making the awesomeness. Please stop by during the Railroad Square First Friday on January 2nd, check out the new space, and consider becoming a member.

Wow - a lot has happened since this page was last updated.  We lost our old space on the west side of town; moved our stuff into our new space at Railroad Square and have been working to get the building ready for the awesomeness.  We are opening the doors to the new space during First Friday on January 2nd.  Please stop by, check out the space, and consider becoming a member.

A gentle reminder that we will have a visit from public library directors from around the State of Florida next Wednesday.  We should have about 25 - 30 extra people in the space that evening.  They will be coming on a trolley so parking shouldn't be a problem.  Richard's law firm is sponsoring snacks/beverages for the group.  We'll do a short welcome and introduction to the space at 6PM.  After that they will wander, look at equipment and projects and talk to folks.  

As you know, public libraries are very interested in the maker movement and are looking for ways to integrate with local maker spaces or, in some cases, build their own.  This kind of event is part of our education mission.

We'll need lots-o-explainers in the space and some interesting projects if available.

The 3-D printer: a machine that can replicate human tissue at the flip of a switch. These machines were showcased at the Backwoods Bistro Tuesday night Science Café where spectators eagerly watched as, layer by layer, printers created 3-D objects.

In tonight's programming class we are going to cover Object Oriented Programming. If you have ever tried to learn OOP and found it frustrating drop on by and see if we can get you up to speed.

Alan from Freeside, Atlanta's non-profit makerspace, visited Making Awesome last Sunday and spent some time talking with Brad and Dave. He wrote up his visit in the Freeside blog

Story
Tagline
A MakerSpace for Tallahassee
Introduction
Making Awesome is the name of Tallahassee's first Maker Space, a community of people who share tools, talents and materials to make real things that they couldn't make with their own individual resources. Common projects at other maker spaces include electronics, robotics, 3D printing, fabrics crafting, metal working, and just about every combination thereof.

Our mission is to provide a space for collaboration, learning and doing. We believe that sharing our skills is just as important as sharing our tools. Making Awesome is dedicated to teaching anyone who wants to learn how to make anything. If we don't know how, we'll be happy to learn along with you.
