The Maker Community crosses boundaries of science and art, young and old, craftsmanship and technology – all coming together to create the innovation economy. The things we make define us as a society and build our future. The people who invent, create and make have the power to change the world.
The Colorado Maker Hub entertains, informs, inspires and grows this community. We not only showcase makers in our events, we nurture connectivity all year long that leads to business, media, educational, and creative opportunities across this community.
At the core are Colorado’s makerspaces (aka creator/hacker spaces). Makerspaces are growing inside school systems, libraries, and as independent entities that nurture those that want to create. To locate a makerspace near you, check our Maker Map. Note that public library spaces are listed on a link at the bottom of the map.
July 16 and 17 of 2016, we will be hosting the Rocky Mountain Makerspace Conference, bringing makers together from all over the region to share best practices, network, and learn.

Colorado Maker Hub’s Youth Maker Program creates opportunities and resources that spark youth making, invention, STEAM learning and entrepreneurship. We approach this by working to help makerspaces, educators, home school-ers, after school clubs, and libraries build the capacity to engage and develop young makers.
We are working with funders, partners and collaborators to bring this all to life. Please contact us if you are interested in collaborating, volunteering, sponsoring, or otherwise playing with us in this program. Sign up for our newsletter here to keep informed as each of these programs is launched.
