The JHLIL is a free community makerspace located in the Clear Lake City-County Freeman Branch Library. We provide access to rapid prototyping tools such as a laser cutter, a desktop CNC and several 3D printers, we provide a range of free classes for makers of all ages and skills and we work to build a community of makers sharing their passions and interests.
MaKr U makerspace is committed to bringing opportunity to areas under served with this type of space. It is our desire to provide a mobile workshop for the tinkerer and the perfect educational space for individuals who learn best by doing. We provide a framework to support lifelong learners that are unfamiliar with exactly how to tinker and explore areas which may initially present failures in the learning process. Never quit!
MaKr U, LLC has been working to create an inviting maker space since we opened in 2015.

ABOUT TECHNO CHAOS
As a physical makerspace for 5 years we’ve hosted projects involving 3D printing, robotics, Internet of Things(IoT), Arduino, Raspberry Pi, programming, Minecraft, etc. Over the last two years, we have seen the interest grow in schools, libraries and other community organizations to create their own makerspace education programs. Instead of continuing to grow our own community, we will be starting the next chapter in our journey to inspire making and project-based learning by focusing on providing services to schools, libraries and other communities. Some of these services will be Makerspace and Robotics Starter Programs. We look forward to being a partner with you and your organization to continue the journey!
