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.

Help The Makerspace Level Up

We're gearing up to file for federal 501(c)3 status as a not-for-profit organization. Achieving this status will help the Bozeman Makerspace expand and grow our operations. As many of you know, these filings take time, patience, and money. The cost to the organization will be several hundred dollars, and we could use every extra cent to get us over the finish line. We've create a special fund in our Paypal to earmark funds specifically for this purpose. If would like pitch in a few bucks, please use the donate button below.

April 28th - Open Build

Officer Elections soon! Nominations underway...

It's that time of year once again... Officer elections hooray!

Each and every year we must hold officer elections. This years election is going to be a different than years past. We are going to be offering an online voting process of some sort in order to get a better turnout, thanks Rob!

But before we hold elections, we MUST have nominations! All (4) officer positions are available.
President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer

All members should have received an email outlining what is going on. If we missed you, send an email to officers [ at ] bozemanmakers.org and we will get the info email out to you asap.

The only restriction is that you MUST be an active member to hold any officer position.

Remember, it's YOUR makerspace ;) Nominate your friends/enemies. Campaign for/against your opponents or yourself. Get dirty, sling some mud...

Nov 14th: One Day Build - DIY Foam Cutter

Join us for our new monthly One Day Build series @ the Bozeman Makerspace. Once a month starting in November we will be building one thing in one day.

We plan on starting off easy for our first build, a DIY Foam Cutter. Why use a knife when you need to cut foam into a shape when you can use electricity and a wire. Super basic, super easy to build... I guess we will find out.

This particular build should result in a new toy for us all to utilize at the space.

Pizza and drinks will be provided (assuming you can eat, drink and build)

If you have other build ideas drop them in the comments below or stop by some Thursday evening during our Open Build Nights.

Space is limited so RSVP Here!

Nov 5th: Quarterly Meeting + Open Build

It's that time once again for our Quarterly Members Meeting (starts @ 7pm). The purpose of this meeting is to discuss ideas, concerns, and most importantly to allow members and the public to suggest what the Bozeman Makerspace should be focusing on in the coming quarter and beyond.

Everyone is welcome to participate.
