We’d like to hear from you. Let us know if you have any questions or suggestions.
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.
INTERESTED, IN THE AREA,
Phillip! I’ve been wanting to meet you for some time now. Love to see about getting the MIXXER community involved with an iron pour sometime.
I can’t wait to see more casting activities in this community
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.
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?
Can’t wait to meet you. Thanks for reaching out!
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.
Great to hear that Mixxer is moving forward! Congrats! Looking forward to seeing the new facility…
