Special Field Trip: Milwaukee Makerspace Tour – 2555 S Lenox St, Milwaukee
Great opportunity for I & E Club members and friends to explore the Milwaukee Makerspace, a place for creative people who like to build, invent, tinker and/or learn new skills and expand their minds. It is a physical space where you can come as a member, and have access to a wide array of equipment that you are not very likely to have at home. Plus, there are folks around the space that can give you tips and pointers on operating that equipment effectively.
At Milwaukee Makerspace, you’ll find people into electronics, robots, wood working, embedded software, metal working (including welding, forging and casting) music, art, electric cars, sewing, textiles, printing and much more. They are pursuing their interests in close proximity to one another that leads to a lot of productivity, personal satisfaction and some amazing collaborative projects.
The new Makerspaces act as hubs for the maker communities, that are popping up all over the world. Our club leader, Bob Balow, is in the process of setting up a similar facility in Racine. Come and see what such a facility could be like for Kenosha & Racine inventors! Or, perhaps you may want to join the Milwaukee Makerspace.
