Makers are a group of hobbyists, entrepreneurs, artists, mad-scientists, hackers, geeks, and other technologically savvy persons interested in creating.
Tony Baltazar from the SnoCo Maker Space group will demonstrate tools available to Maker Space members.
The maker culture is a contemporary culture or subculture representing a technology-based extension of DIY culture that intersects with hacker culture which is less concerned with physical objects (opposed to software) and the creation of new devices (opposed to tinkering with existing ones). Typical interests enjoyed by the maker culture include engineering-oriented pursuits such as electronics, robotics, 3-D printing, and the use of CNC tools, as well as more traditional activities such as metalworking, woodworking, and, mainly, its predecessor, the traditional arts and crafts.
