The BB2C Makerspace is located at the Epicenter and was created to be a gathering point for our community. Here you will find people with shared interests who gather to imagine, explore, create, design, and prototype. Our 6,600 square feet of space offers access to a collection of tools, technology, and know how to the community through class offerings and special events. Anyone who becomes a Makerspace Members gains access to all of the tools and equipment in the space to start their own projects. We are a community of individuals interested in learning, making, and creating.
If you have not yet visited us this year, we hope you will stop in for a tour or take a class with one of our Instructors or Content Experts!

UPCOMING MAKERSPACE CLASSES
We are here to serve the MOV Community. If you have a project you would like to do or skill you would like to learn, please let us know. We can also arrange with our content experts and instructors to run special classes if you have a large group (5+) that are all interested in taking a class, but can not make our scheduled classes above.
