WHAT DO WE DO

Makers Club is a group of students that meets up regularly to work on their personal projects. Our goal is to connect artists, tinkerers, prototypers with the proper subject matter expertise to bring their ideas to life. Through the collaborative company of like-minded individuals (and frequent meetups) makers maintain the motivation they need to stay focused on their projects and meet their personal goals. Besides weekly meetups and frequent workshops, we also regularly host special interest talks on popular topics, and an annual Makers Fair for makers and other student organizations to showcase their work.




MEETUP LOCATIONS

Makers Club meets in the Charger Union Sky Bridge Wednesdays at 7pm. Make sure you use the sign-up link below to get on our mailing list to receive notifications about our upcoming meetups, campus talks, and workshops. Bring your laptop to our meetups and grab some coffee while you work.




ANNUAL MAKERS FAIR!

Get ready. This year's Makers Fair is going to be packed. Attend sessions and learn how to create Android or iOS apps, design websites, or build your own 3D-printable model. Grab a friend for courage, bring your laptops, and come ready to learn! Explore the work of local startups, student organizations, and the maker community as you hangout with friends, try different foodtrucks, and celebrate Maker culture. Games, device give-aways, and make-a-thons will be held throughout the day. Event will take place at the Charger Union Building on the UAH campus. Various startups and clubs will be showcasing their work. Raffle prizes include Qi wireless chargers, programmable NFC tags, Arduino boards, and more!


MAKER CULTURE

Maker Culture revolves around the principles of friendliness, openness, encouragement, and acceptance. There are no requirements for joining Makers Club. Membership is as easy as joining our mailing list. Swing by any Thursday night and pick out a badge, or bring your laptop and get started on your next project! (Or learn how!)
