Oak Hill MakerSpace is a major part of the Collaborative; available to incubator participants, residents of the neighborhood, and other interested parties, the MakerSpace is a “community center with tools” providing access to a wide array of equipment and tools including several 3D printers, computers, wood working equipment, assorted hand tools, air compressors and the like with more being donated, borrowed, and otherwise acquired all the time. Our weekly MakerSpace meetings bring the community together to think, build and share their ideas and expertise on a variety of projects.
A Makerspace is a community center with tools. They are the foundation of a world-wide “maker movement” where workers, inventors, hobbyists, tinkerers, artisans, makers, hackers, designers, students, teachers and do-it-yourselfers can collaborate on a wide range of projects.
The Oak Hill MakerSpace supplies workshops for 3D printing, electronics, metalworking, woodworking, aquaponics, organic agriculture and composting, sewing, and many others. Members and residents are able to use any equipment they are qualified to operate at minimal cost.
The Oak Hill MakerSpace supports start-up businesses in the incubator that cannot afford to own and maintain expensive, but essential, equipment. Interested and motivated people can utilize the available tools and equipment to cooperate, collaborate, innovate, and make.
