Lowell Makes Company Profile
Lowell Makes, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, will be opening in early July 2013, and will be a “makerspace.” Makerspaces are all unique, but share many things in common: Shared equipment, tools and resources most people cannot afford on their own or fit in their homes. A vibrant community that loves to make, fix, invent and modify,or “hack” things – all kinds of things – and loves to share knowledge and learn. An ecosystem where anyone can be a student, teacher or both. Like many makerspaces, we plan to have a mix of high-tech things like 3D printers and CNC mills, along with more traditional workshop spaces including a wood shop and metal shop. Ultimately, the kinds of things we have will be determined by our members. Lowell Makes is the result of the ideas of three people who live in Lowell and love Lowell, each with very different backgrounds, who may not have ever met if they hadn’t found themselves enrolled in the same class at the Sandbox Leadership Institute.
