We are all innovators

In collaboration with Indy Ruckus Makerspace,

we will be developing the teaching and learning materials and tools for our community.


Making isn’t new, but modern technologies, globalization,and cultural shifts have positively influenced the maker’s movement. By using technology based tools such as 3D printer, 3D laser cutter, and 3D CNC fabrication, we can accelerate time and effort of making things. It allows for 1 day turn arounds, and 1 person operated product manufacturing with proper learning and application of the tools.

Wonder Lab is a design platform to aid communities generate solutions, connect to these important resources, and to help community members to build business models that are using technology based maker tools.
