Welcome to the Mobile Makerspace!

Mobile Makerspace is a 501c3 non-Profit organization.

Who are we? We’re a group of makers in Mobile, Alabama. We’re a group of hobbyists who work with everything from electronics to woodworking, and are interested in everything from cooking to quantum physics. Our members are computer geeks, engineers, artists, students, and everything in between.

Who are makers? You, me, anyone and everyone. A maker is a person who has a passion for learning, experimentation, tinkering, and teaching. Do you find yourself taking things apart to see how they work? Do you tend to try to fix things instead of buying new? Do you ever spend an afternoon daydreaming about an invention or an idea? If you answer yes to any of these, then you are a maker!

What do we do? We work on projects at the space. We have monthly meetings to discuss our passion for making. We share project ideas and collaborate together.

What’s a makerspace? A makerspace is a collaborative work space for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools. These spaces have a variety of maker equipment, including: 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC machines, soldering irons, woodworking tools, screen printing, and even sewing machines.
