The Omaha Maker Group exists to facilitate a place where people can explore Technology, Science and Art. We operate a community workshop in Omaha, Nebraska and have 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:
Visitors are virtually always welcome but a regular meeting 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.
Meetings are every other Tuesday and are listed on the calendar, on the right side of the main page. Meetings have a presentation, some announcements and run until around 7:30 PM; After that, we have open shop time until at least 10:00. On weeks without a meeting, we have “Tinkering Thursday”, which is just open shop time from 6:00 PM until at least 10:00 PM.
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 Kevin or Eric, though everyone is quite friendly and helpful.
