Okanagan Makerspace is the inaugural community project that the Million Dollar Bus selected and ran a fundraising campaign for.
We successfully raised $6000 for this nonprofit project in Kelowna, British Columbia.
They are currently in development of launching Kelowna’s first community Makerspace.
WHAT IS A MAKERSPACE?
Who Benefits From a Makerspace?
The Maker Community
This space creates a community of innovators that include a range of hobbyist and professional builders, artists and entrepreneurs.
Students of All Ages
The Makerspace serves as a place for learning and mentorship, allowing students to build things with tools they would not otherwise have access to.
Community Groups Needing a Home
The space also serves as a great place for the community’s nonprofits, and advocacy groups to hold their monthly meeting and events.
