The Omaha Maker Group is a public charity as defined by the IRS tax code, 501(c)3. We exist to facilitate a place where people can explore Technology, Science and Art. We operate a community workshop in Omaha, Nebraska and have weekly open shop nights and bi-weekly meetings where people can collaborate, share resources, create, and learn together. We are Omaha’s original Makerspace.
If you’re an inventor, artist, scientist, student, educator, hacker, maker, hobbyist, or just curious about how things work, you’ve come to the right place.
If you’re considering visiting:
The Makerspace is open every Tuesday evening from 6:00PM to about 10:00PM, as well as unscheduled times throughout the week as members stop by. The first Tuesday of each month also has a prearranged presentation about a topic of interest to our members, and the third Tuesday of the month generally includes a short business meeting to discuss the operation of the space.
Visitors are welcome any time the space is open, but the meeting on the first Tuesday of the month is a great opportunity to meet many members of the group. Meetings start at 7:00 PM (or shortly thereafter), but there’s usually someone around starting at about 5:30 PM. (Some people bring their dinner and head over after work, for a bit of pre-meeting socializing).
It’s pretty hard to put into words what makes the Makery (a nickname for our space) special, but I invite you to come on over and check us out.
We also have open shop time on the weekends, though nothing formally scheduled. The best thing to do is to get on our forums
and see the last time the “Space is Open!” versus the last time the “Space is Closed!”. You can also peek at the webcams.
If you do come out, you can ask for Sarah, Kevin or Eric, though everyone is quite friendly and helpful.
