Welcome to the first makerspace initiative of its kind.
We use projects to teach real-life skills, build leadership, and prepare learners to excel as young adults in a technologically advanced world. Unlike traditional education, our methods are based in educational research and numerous prior successes. Our vision is to proliferate this
to every major Air Force base in the world.

Our aim is to provide innovative and consistent project-based STEM education to the children of military families and surrounding communities.
We provide material and technical resources necessary for a range of engineering projects, big or small.
MakeLAB instills leadership
skills by facilitating a learning experience centered on teamwork and self-determination.
Our team of staff and student teachers work together to take student ideas and turn them into real products.
This one is simple: at the end of the day we're here to build cool stuff.
Our Curriculum Model
We leverage makerspaces in many ways. One method we use to benefit the community is by enhancing extracurricular high school education using a project-based STEM curriculum which instills essential engineering skills like computer aided design, 3D printing, laser cutting and coding—as well as higher-level abilities like design thinking, creative confidence, and rapid prototyping.
