We need your help to start a community bike program!

Portsmouth could really use a community bicycle program, a place where kids and adults alike could go and learn to fix bicycles and have free access to parts that other people no longer need. Port City Makerspace has been in contact with the city of Portsmouth transfer station about starting to direct bicycles out of the trash stream, but what to do with all those bicycles? We are holding a brainstorming session about starting a community bike program on Friday Aug 30th 6-8pm. Anyone interested in participating in this or just interested in seeing it happen is invited to attend.

Non-profit status underway

Non-profit status underwayPort City Makerspace is pleased to announce that we are in the process of becoming a 501-c3 registered non-profit organization. We have decided that this is the next step in becoming the best community resource that we can be. Our goal in this process is to maintain being the most affordable makerspaces in the country while continuing to grow our already extensive workshop spaces.

Serious Halloween Costumes

Serious Halloween CostumesJust wanted to take a moment to share some of the things people are doing around here in the Halloween spirit.

 

At 9:30 on thursday night Jeff decided to be tony stark because it was a “simple” costume that aloowed him to wear jeans and a t-shirt. He walked out of the space that night with a rusty washer that he said was going to be his arc reactor… at 11:00 pm he texts us this picture.

Then he must have really started feeling like tony stark because here is a picture of him 72 hours later working on his mark II reactor.
