MAC Makerspace Programs

Learn and Lead is a unique work exchange program design to ensure accessable training and programming here at the MAC.

While many Makerspaces oer training for a small fee, we know that this small barrier often prevents potential makers from taking the initiative to recieve proper training on equipment.

The Learn and Lead program provides the opportunity for you to recieve training on any piece of equipment within our shop. These trainings are oered on a one-to-one basis, or small group of up to 4. Training can last anywhere from 1-2 hours depending on your level of interest, equipment, and pace of learning.

In exchange for training, we ask that you volunteer 2 hours of your time to lead a small workshop within our space. You are in control of what and when you teach. We know that teaching can be very intimidating for some, so we are more than happy to work with you to teach you the art of teaching! It may be a hands-on workshop, or simply a presentation, you are in control of the curriculum. You are not required to use the equipment you were trained on, but are encouraged. Most workshops will involve around 5 participants, or whatever you find comfortable.

If the learn and Lead program does not feel comfortable for you, we are more than happy to provide training for a small fee as well. Prices vary based on equipment, and time, so please feel free to reach out for more details. 



Step 1, it’s more than just a starting point, its a trajectory. No matter if you’re working from your basement, or have a team of developers; with the support of the IEE, we are able to connect you with not only the equipment, but a staff of experienced business advisers.

Micro Manufacturing

Together, we will explore how advanced manufacturing technologies, Computer Assisted Design, in combination with traditional hand skills can ensure that your project is able to scale in a manner that is as efficient, sustainable, and effective as possible. Connecting you with the tools and skilled labor necessary to grow your business.
