We're making a MakerSpace...

...in Watertown. And we'd like your help!

What's a makerspace? It's a community workplace for inventors, tinkerers, artists, craftspeople and business entrepreneurs who come together in one place to share equipment, resources and ideas; to teach and learn. It's a community gathering place for creative people -- makers, thinkers and doers -- of all ages.
 
We've been talking about this for a year. Now, thanks to a generous grant to Sustain Jefferson from a local foundation, we're ready to make a Watertown MakerSpace a reality.
 
Join us for our next Planning Committee meeting on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. in the community meeting room of the Watertown campus of Madison College, 1300 W. Main St.
 
Please visit our wiki, an online forum where we can collaborate: http://www.sustainjefferson.org/wms. The wiki is open for anyone to read; if you would like an account so that you can add your own thoughts, please contact us at makerspace@sustainjefferson.org. If you can't join us for meetings, you can still help on the wiki, or you can send your thoughts by e-mail to the above address.
 
What equipment should be there? How might you use the MakerSpace? Know of a suitable building for rent in Watertown we should look at? Would you like to be a member of our Watertown MakerSpace Planning Committee? Let us know what you think!
