Springfield, Mo is becoming a technical center for SW Missouri and the four state area. Throughout the country, Makerspace organizations are opening brick and mortar workspaces where makers come together and collaborate, learn and share. These spaces are ideal for people of all ages, races, genders, etc. who are creative (and we ALL are) or loves hands-on learning, can benefit. DreamIT MakeIT’s vision is to provide the Springfield community with such a place to imagine and create any project, big or small, using machinery for woodworking and metalworking, laser cutters, 3-D printers, electronics, and more.
Come and join in on the fun as we create a state-of-the-art makerspace that will move Springfield forward to become a hub of innovation and collaboration.
Making is fundamental to what it means to be human. We must make, create and express ourselves to feel whole. There is something unique about making physical things. These things are like little pieces of us and seem to embody portions of our souls
Mark Hatch The Maker Movement Manifesto
DreamIT MakeIT will create a community of creatively driven individuals who will learn, teach, create new opportunities, and inspire others to do the same. DreamIT MakeIT will provide the community with tools that they otherwise may not have access to. With those tools, they could start a new business, invent a new product, or just enjoy a new hobby.
We will build partnerships with local organizations as well, whose members will benefit from our makerspace, such as colleges, schools, and companies who wish to involve their students and employees.
