Makers Factory in Santa Cruz

I’ve long been envious of people on the other side of the hill who have access to maker spaces equipped with fancy tools and offering classes in how to use them.  I only see the stuff at Maker Faire and on the web—I don’t get to play with it.

Now it seems like Santa Cruz is getting one: Makers Factory — A new way to learn :: A new world to learn.

An image from the Makers Factory home page, showing how they envision the space.

I’m wondering if there is a way I could help out: teaching Arduino programming, for example, or PC board design (which I’ve just been learning myself—see the series about printed circuit boards).  It would be great if the high-school robotics club could get some cheap access also, perhaps in return for volunteer hours.

I’ll have to get in touch with them soon and see what opportunities are available.
