About our Creation Stations

What are Creation Stations?
Creation Stations are commonly referred to as Makerspaces, or Hackerspaces. Creation Stations expose patrons to new technologies, help patrons learn new skills, and transform ideas into inventions through development, prototyping, and production. Simply put, Creation Stations are where one goes to make things!
