A makerspace is a place where like minded people can get together and share their interest in science, electronics and all things technological. The aim is to share knowledge, show off our skills and inspire each other to new heights of inventiveness.

We meet twice a month, once for personal projects and there's always someone there to help out or impress. The second meet is for talks, show and tell and group discussions. A chance to learn something new like PCB making or hear about the latest tech from someone who's been hands-on with it.

Successes: Our Tractor bot won Best Remote-Controlled Robot at Pi Wars Cambridge Dec 2014. We have since open-sourced this design - details at http://ipswichmakerspace.com/tractorbot-is-open-source/. At Pi Wars 2015, our redesigned TractorBot to second place in the Large (over A4) category.

We have now moved into a more permanent home at 83 Grimwade St, Ipswich, IP4 1LN. It is a 16th Century Merchants House featuring panelled rooms with exposed timber work and decorative plaster ceilings, with enclosed garden at the rear. Quite a stimulating work environment!
