What is Maker Society?

Maker Society is a club at Colorado School of Mines. The mission of Maker Society is to give any student, faculty, or staff member the resources to make/build anything. We provide resources in many ways. First, Maker Society buys machines, tools, and materials for use by all. A few examples include our Ultimaker 3D printer, Lionel the Vinyl Cutter, and soldering irons. Second, we hold workshops to teach the Mines community how to use the different machines we own and ones we do not. Other workshops revolve around making something, such as long bows, and participants take them home. Third, we provide information to students, faculty, and staff about where to find all the resources they need to make anything. Fourth, Maker Society operates many of the maker spaces on campus and promotes the creation of more. We see a need from all members of the Mines community to MAKE, be it for class projects, personal inventions, club endevors, or ANYTHING else.

Our Story
 

 
32388503425_e8849980cc_o.jpg

Maker Society was started in early 2015 by a group of passionate students who wanted a space where students could be more hands on. They wanted a makerspace but couldn't find anything campus resources, so they took the hard road and decided to create their own for the betterment of current and future students at Mines. Through hard work Maker Society built a member base in the Mines community. They started workshops to teach everything from Arduino to welding. Since 2015, Maker Society has caused the creation of two full makerspaces at Colorado School of Mines. The Blaster Design Factory in Brown Building atrium and the Digger Design Lab in the basement of the EPICS Annex. The club fully furnished and populated the Blaster Design Factory in the eyes of the students who would be its main users.
