We Build Comprehensive School Makerspaces That Can...
✔️Adapt to Change
We've designed our programmatic plans to grow alongside emerging tools, trades and technologies. That means you won't have to start again from scratch whenever something needs to change!
✔️ Withstand Constant Use
We’ve seen over 6000 students cut, drill, saw, and hammer away at our makerspace to bring their ideas to life. You'll need really sturdy pieces that can stand the test of creative exploration!
✔️ Be Reconfigured as Needed
Our modular pieces can be rearranged to fit any space and adjust as space changes.
Have an assembly? No problem. Just roll the furniture out of the way.
Plus — Get Access to Maker Ed Support to Maximize Your Makerspace!
Our support goes far beyond building makerspaces.
To help you make the most of your new maker lab, we offer PLENTY of supplemental maker education resources from an online maker curriculum to teacher training and Professional Development.
