Vector Space is a nonprofit makerspace: a physical place for people interested in science, technology, engineering, art, and math to collaborate, invent, discover, and build the things that interest them. A place where students, hobbyists and professionals hone their craft, share their knowledge, and learn new things. We provide the tools and the space, you bring the willingness to learn new things in a social environment.

We are building an environment where lifelong learners can come to expand their knowledge and explore their interests through hands-on projects. Students ages middle school and up will be eligible for membership and after school programs. Weekends will include family-friendly workshops and events, where children and parents can build and learn together. Our adult members will enjoy unlimited access to 3D printers, power tools and machinery, computers and servers, RaspberryPi and Arduino, textiles and materials, and so much more.

We focus on the STEAM fields and stress the importance of learning by doing. Our classes, workshops and projects will inspire members to share knowlege, learn from each other, and mentor others. Each lesson is hands-on and taught by local experts and professionals: science professors, engineers, graphic designers, woodworkers, computer scientists and more. Here you’ll learn to safely and effectively use the tools you need to complete the projects that excite you.
