This past Friday, the front page of the Miami Herald featured the growing maker movement in South Florida! The article featured growing makerspaces, the upcoming Miami Mini Maker Faire and the Maker Camp that Palm Beach LED and Startup Delray hosted this past summer!

Those in the movement like to point out that that there is nothing new about makers. For centuries, people have been tinkering in their garages, the incubator of many of the world’s greatest inventions. But rather than being solitary, many of them like to create with other like-minded makers. Think your grandmother’s canning parties or that woodworking project that brought out the whole neighborhood of advisers and assistants.

But now, with the tools of tech becoming more accessible and affordable, particularly the 3D printer, the maker movement is moving to a whole new level. It’s now possible to design your project with software and to make a model of it or parts for it with a 3D printer, take the plans into the wood shop, metal shop or sewing shop and bring the idea to life with your own hands.

By signing our petition you will express your desire for creating a first-class makerspace here in Palm Beach County. Your support provides us with a community voice and the needed leverage to petition community leaders, municipalities, and local businesses/corporations for their support and funding that will be needed to make Palm Beach LED possible. Rarely do we have an opportunity to be at the very inception and formation of something of great community value such as a makerspace. So why not have a voice in its creation?

Let us know what you are seeking in a makerspace and how Palm Beach LED can serve you!
