Creatorspace Classes for July

The Robot class we’ve been teasing for the last few months has finally been scheduled! The 3-part class will begin on Saturday July 29, 1-5pm.

In this class we will be building a simple obstacle avoiding wheeled robot with an Arduino for a brain. You will get to assemble the bot and outfit it with motors and sensors in Part One. In Part Two you will program the Arduino to make the bot sense and respond to the environment. Part Three you will take your breadboard design and turn it into a soldered project board to make it a permanent part of your robot.

Class size will be limited to 10 people and will cost $100 inclusive of parts.The link to register is on the registration tab. More detail about each class and instructor is available on the website registration tab.

Makerspace Crawl

Did you know that Houston has other Makerspaces in addition to Creatorspace? We do, and thanks to David Brunet and our own Jared Williams, we are going to step outside of our comfort zones and go out and visit with each other!!

The Houston Summer Maker Space Crawl begins this upcoming Saturday, July 15, 5:30pm – 9pm, and will be hosted by Creatorspace (of course). Our theme will be Molecular Gastronomy – hors-d’ouevres and beverages will be served. The evening is oriented towards adults, but children are welcome.

The Crawl will be highlighting a different Makerspace each Saturday for the next six weeks. This is a great opportunity to work together and to get people out to visit the various makerspaces around the city.

Creatorspace has been hard at work since the move at the beginning of the month, rearranging, cleaning, sorting and building, and we are finally ready to welcome you all to the new Space.

Starting this Tuesday, April 25, at 7pm, we will be commencing our regular weekly Open House again. Come by, take the tour, see what new goodies we have (and see some old things you didn’t know we had)!

We are calling this our “Soft” Opening, in contrast to our Grand Opening on Saturday, June 3, which will be a much bigger celebration of  who we are, and our formal introduction to our new neighbors in League City. Stay tuned!

Creatorspace’s new address is 120 Park Avenue, League City TX 77573, the big blue building at the intersection of Main Street and the railroad tracks.

The new Space is 4500 sqft, more than 3x our previous Space. It has multiple rooms, much better parking, and is accessible from the street (no gate!). Check out the pictures on our Facebook page!
