Benicia Makerspace is a place where people come together to learn, collaborate, invent, prototype, and test new ideas using state-of-the-art equipment. We are an IRS tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, incorporated in California as a Non-Profit Corporation. Our space is a community shop where students, hobbyists, and entrepreneurs can make things, use shared equipment, learn new skills, and incubate new business ideas. Areas of interest include but are not limited to, 3D printing, IoT (Internet Of Things) electric vehicles, alternative energy, sustainability, resource conservation, robotics, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, woodworking, and metalworking.
We host regular public lectures at our facility and Maker events at area schools. We are enthusiastic supporters of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) and view it as an essential part of education. We also maintain a small computer lab with a wide variety of art, design, and technology-related software.
