Make :: Create :: Hack :: Learn

The Bozeman MakerSpace is a non-profit Makerspace / Hackerspace in Bozeman, MT. If you have an interest in making, modding things, new technology, or just want to learn how things work, this is to be the place for you. Our makerspace is a community workshop combined with a meeting space where people of similar interests or skills can converge to create, modify, learn, talk and build. You don't need to be proficient with any tools, skill, computer, or even know how to solder. All you need to the desire to learn or teach.

What is a MakerSpace?

A Makerspace / Hackerspace allows groups of people to pool resources and create a community of people with varied interests. These interests may include but are definitely not limited to: circuitry, robotics, soldering, woodworking, fabricating, programming, networking, hacking, bending, etc.

New Here?

If you are new to the Bozeman Makerspace or just new to makerspaces in general, we encourage you to come on down for one of our Thursday Open Build Nights. You can bring a project along, or you can just come check out the space.
