UPDATE (9/18/20)

MakeX is now open! Given the ongoing pandemic, we are taking necessary precautions to stay safe such as sanitizing frequently and requiring the usage of masks. Additionally, we are working with local hospitals to provide them with 3D printed PPE amid shortages. Click the button below to learn how you can help!


Welcome to MakeX! We are proudly the nation's first teen-founded-teen-run, free-access, community makerspace, or for short, NFTFTRFACM!


We are committed to forming a community of creative minds. Our mentor team is dedicated to helping every visitor with their projects and ensuring they feel welcome in the maker community.

Tool Access

We provide access to state-of-the-art tools, software, and materials such as laser cutters, 3D printers, woodshop tools, and more... for FREE!

Project-based Learning

Learn to make and make to learn! We encourage our visitors to use projects as a means of education through our workshops.
