Why You Should Be A Member:


Being a member of the Mankato Makerspace is more than just having access to the physical space and the tools. Its not just a place you go and work. As a member you become part of the makerspace community. You make new connections and create new friendships. You find yourself engaging with those around you in many ways: learning, helping, collaborating, teaching, etc.


Yes, become a member and get that project or idea started! But know that it's more than just a pass to a building, it's the key to other creatives in your community.


Join today! We are creating custom creations for our new members - more updates to come!
