glad to hear my little rant about maker spaces didn’t fall on deaf ears

Back in the 80’s I thought that laser engravers were great, but couldn’t afford to invest. Today i took a course at the Calgary Protospace that let me use the device rs. Cost——10 bucks CDN (7.50 us $) Oh and there’s a whack of donated materials from soup to nuts to experiment and learn on. software is free!

Oh ya, courses are important to meet new and interested folks, I met a lot for my 50 bucks/month. And most of them were not neophytes, they had expertise in many other fields On the other hand, for old guys, there’s teenagerss making robots that you can help out too!

The economics aside, I am lovin it !!! Ain’t sure, but I’m thinkin most maker spaces have free open houses
