What is a The Upper Valley MakerSpace?
The Upper Valley MakerSpace and the Claremont MakerSpace will be community centers with tools. Our purpose is to provide access for the maker community to equipment, education and space that normally wouldn’t be available to individuals working alone.
The Upper Valley MakerSpace and the Claremont MakerSpace are resource centers which enables members to learn, design and create. We offer access to everyone for engineering, fabrication and prototyping.
The Upper Valley MakerSpace and the Claremont MakerSpace are projects of TwinState MakerSpaces, a 501(c)3 non profit organization.
MakerSpaces are a fairly new phenomenon which are producing projects with significant national impacts. A few notable projects which have emerged from MakerSpaces include:
- The Pebble Watch, a programmable watch whose team is the recipient of the largest Kickstarter campaign in history.
- MakerBot, a low-cost 3D printer that is revolutionizing the entire rapid prototyping industry.
- Square, a payment gateway enabling small businesses to collect money worldwide with ease.
All MakerSpaces are formed by individuals sharing space and tools. Each MakerSpace is designed for their community and by their community. Join us, and help create the Upper Valley MakerSpace and the Claremont MakerSpace.
