    The Mixxer needs civil and community wide attention, the concept reaches beyond a community center and lends itself to the needs of education at a level that is unattainable at an individual school level. The concept of being a district resource supported by the community, chamber of commerce, and local government should be explored by businesses and civic leaders very closely. Project based learning can only go so far in the classroom, providing exposure to industrial skills and guided assistance for taking projects to the next level for people of all ages is the type of service that will link the 21st century human with the skills the 20th century used to get society to this point of evolvement. As an educator I am looking forward to seeing the Mixxer develop into one of Winston Salem’s greatest community assets.

    I am moving out to Winston in two weeks, and would love to help be a part of making this space a reality! Please let me know what I can do to help out.

    Hi Steve,
    VERY new to the maker world. I work on social change and I’m intrigued with using the values of makers to create positive social change. Coffee?

  5. Ben says:

    I recently moved to WS and would love to be involved with getting this makerspace up and running. Coffee sometime to chat?

    I’m a Computer Science professor at Wake Forest University working on
    an NSF STEM+C grant proposal that aims to integrate computational
    thinking and computer-based skills with existing learning objectives
    in middle and high school mathematics, physics, and engineering courses.

    Our particular approach is to create exemplar projects that inspire
    students through “craft related to culture” — including, among others,
    Native American, African American, Moravian, and Hispanic.

    I’d like to become better informed about makerspaces in Winston-Salem,
    as the types of projects we propose can involve the use of 3D printers,
    millers, laser cutters, metal cutters, and so forth.

    Please contact me if you’d like to talk about our project.

    Alan,

    Great to hear that Mixxer is moving forward! Congrats! Looking forward to seeing the new facility…

    Hello everyone, I’ve been looking for a makerspace near me for a while now, I’m very interested in becoming a member when it opens.
    For now I’m just trying to understand the timeline, the current status of the project, and what the next steps are?

    Thanks

    Really exciting to see something like this happening in WS, the city of arts with no judgment! A place my late father would have loved to not only work on his metal designs alone but along many other people passionate about art. This seems like networking at its most basic state (“build it and they will come”). I would love to talk with someone about how you will obtain the machinery. Are you purchasing new machines for the space or are you wanting community people to lend/rent them?

    Sounds very exciting! To help get the word out, to you come speak briefly to groups? Our church hosts a summer art camp for all ages, including adults, and I think people would be interested in learning about this venture!

    Looking forward to spending time and working on projects at mixxer. Let me know if you could use some help, particularly with the website.

      Great! We would love for you to be a part of building our community makerspace. I’ll send you a private message.

    I would like to learn more, and have some good woodworking and decent metalworking skills. I would like to learn about CNC and 3D printing. Let me know if there is meeting or forum to get involved.

    • Alan Shelton says:

      Hi Carl. I’ll send you a private message about some ways you can get some experience with 3D printers and CNC machines.
