Come and Make It!, like other makerspaces are “providing the space and the materials for project-based, independent, hands-on experience for students”. – Campbell University
Youth 8 to 22 can join Come and Make It! as members for only $40 monthly! Members are allowed to drop in for one hour weekly during our drop-in hours Monday to Thursday (3PM to 7PM). Parents can lock in a weekly time slot or drop in during a time. During that time youth do either projects they are interested in (self-directed) or projects that the makerspace has designed for them. Check our calendar to see what students can make weekly. We do allow drop-in registration. Drop-in weekly for one hour for $15.
At Come and Make It!, members have access to the design and digital lab, a fully stocked traditional art studio, the fashion and jewelry room, various hand tools and wood, and culinary space.
Beyond that, we also house other pieces of equipment behind closed doors the community can access through free or discounted classes pottery kiln, glass torch, welder, a laser engraver, woodworking tools, and multiple 3-D printers, and more.
All of our staff and volunteers are background checked with a minimum of two years job experience working with youth in other nonprofit such as schools, youth centers, and more.
