Established in 2010, Eugene Maker Space is Oregon’s latest and wonderfully nominatively deterministic hackerspace. Our goal is to provide workspace, tools, equipment, and other resources while creating a community of collaboration and hands-on learning. Eugene Maker Space is a registered nonprofit organization in the state of Oregon.
As of February 2012 we now have 501(c)(3) sponsorship though the School Factory. As such, we are capable of accepting tax-exempt donations of funding or equipment. Please email the board if you have a donation you would like to make as a tax-exempt donation.
Eugene Maker Space is located at 687 McKinley Street Suite #2 in Eugene, Oregon 97402. Key-holding members are welcome to visit the space any time they please. If you would like to visit Eugene Maker Space and meet some new people, check our calendar or blog to keep up to date with public events.
Maker Faire is the Greatest Show (and Tell) on Earth—a family-friendly showcase of invention, creativity and resourcefulness, and a celebration of the Maker Movement. It’s a place where people show what they are making, and share what they are learning.
Makers range from tech enthusiasts to crafters to homesteaders to scientists to garage tinkerers. They are of all ages and backgrounds. The aim of Maker Faire is to entertain, inform, connect and grow this community.
The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA and in 2015 celebrated its tenth annual show with some 1100+ makers and 145,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in four years to 600+ makers and 80,000 attendees. Detroit, Kansas City, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Orlando, Pittsburgh, San Diego, Silver Spring, Ottawa, Lisbon, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Newcastle, Hannover, Oslo, Trondheim, Seoul, Singapore, Taipei, Tokyo, and Shenzhen are the home of larger-scale, “featured” Maker Faires. In addition, over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the United States and the world—including right here in Eastern Long Island.
Maker Faire is supported by Make: magazine and Maker Media.
Make: is the first magazine devoted entirely to Do-It-Yourself (DIY) technology projects.
Make: unites, inspires, informs, and entertains a growing community of resourceful people who undertake amazing projects in their backyards, basements, and garages. Make: celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend any technology to your will.
