Gulf Coast Makers offers a broad based creative community to Gulf Coast area entrepreneurial and creative DIYers.
This website and associated social media is hosted by the nonprofit organization, Learning is for Everyone (LI4E.org), which organized and hosted the area’s first Mini Maker Faire, two years in a row, and is also the hosting organization for TEDxTampaRiverwalk, and Robocon, and provides community based STEM education programs in Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties.
LI4E is also working on the development of public community makerspaces through our LI4E Community Innovation Center program, in collaboration with area libraries and others. We regularly host “pop-up” makerspace projects like Red Bull Creation and the Deconstruction, where our collaborative teaming with The Urban Conga earned us the top award.
Look for a Gulf Coast MakerCon to celebrate our shared DIY Creative Spirit with fun and flair again in the Spring of 2014!
Collaboration is always invited and everyone is welcome!
