We meet in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood, where we teach, learn, and make. Our mission is two-fold: 1) act as a physical resource and 2) be advocates for STEM+ education. Our space is a community space where members and non-members can utilize our tools, collaborate, share knowledge. At the same time, we foster an independent network for innovative thinking and creative endeavors.
