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.
We provide tools and resources in an open environment that enable you to learn and explore new things, build a new invention, or just meet new people interested in making things.
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.
