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.

Maker Saturday (Yeah, this Saturday!)

A festive day of hacking and building will take place this Saturday! Come join a group of makers getting together to build fun and interesting projects. Feel free to bring your own project to work on, or just come and have fun conversation with fellow makers from the Gallatin Valley.

Check our Calendar for details of all our upcoming events!

When: Saturday, August 27th, 2011 12:00 PM (recurring ever other week)
Where: A Members Garage!
2720 Harris Street Bozeman, MT
Bozeman, MT 59715

Squishy Circuits

So I found This Website the other day while searching for quick small projects. This site provides recipes for conductive and insulating "play dough" that you can build simple circuits out of. I'm going to cook up a couple batches tonight and start playing around with it, and I'll try to remember to bring some to the Saturday build so you can all take a look and play with it yourself.

Initial Group Project thread

Forums: 

We discussed possible group project ideas during our last Mini-meet. So...... lets put our ideas online, and by our next Maker Saturday event we should have some real ideas to pick from.... Post away!

ECE stock room website.

last night at the mini-meetup it seemed like a lot of you were interested in what the universities electrical engineering stock room had to offer for parts.

here's a link to their website
this shows the hours that they are open and a somewhat ancient inventory list showing most of what Brent has available, and generally what the price is going to be.

NOTE: they only accept cash or check, so be ready for that.

Mini-Meet Reminder : Tonight @ Bacchus Pub

A sweet table sign provided by Travis Hyyppa! Now people might find us at the pub ;)

Just a friendly reminder if you are interested in getting to know more about the Bozeman Makerspace.

We are hosting biweekly mini meets for the Bozeman Makerspace. Come one, come all for festive discussions with fellow makers from around the Gallatin Valley. Beyond the typical ramblings about electronics, fire, and building cool stuff, we want to hear about your projects.

We typically meet in the area between the Bacchus Pub and Ted Montana Grill.

We would love to have everyone with interest attend!

Soldering is Easy!

Found this in my RSS feeds today. Definitely some good info in it, and one of the formats available allows it to be easily printed as a comic book. Given all the excitement around The World's Most Useless Machine last Saturday, it might be worth cranking out a few dozen of these for our next big event.

From the website (http://www.ai-class.com)

"The class runs from Sept 26 through Dec 16, 2011. While this class is being offered online, it is also taught at Stanford University, where it continues to be a popular intro-level class on AI. For the online version, the instructors aim to offer identical materials, assignments, and exams, and to use the same grading criteria. Both instructors will be available for online discussions."
