Monthly Maker 1-Year Subscription

$144

with David Mercer

Calendar Next session starts Jan 1, 2019

Our Monthly Maker program brings you a guided maker learning activity every month! For each project, we will provide all the tools and materials you need to complete your own build in our makerpsace, plus instructor assistance as needed.

Projects vary from month-to-month, and are typically appropriate for teens and adults. Some projects are also appropriate for older children (ages 9-12), while others children will be required to observe an adult stand-in (for example, using the metalworking shop.)

This program is included in every full individual Huntsville STEAM Works makerspace membership (limit 1 per household for family membership). Typical drop-in rate for non-members to do a Monthly Maker project is $20 per month. This full year subscription for non-members brings you nearly $100 of savings over the course of a year!
