KOTO Makers Association provides a public space for individuals of all ages and budgets to participate in making. The makerspace supports the learning of new tools and programs; it can provide tooling for DIY projects that cannot be done at home, while also providing a place for people who share the same passion to meet and work on community projects, and even where schools and teams can meet to practice and learn up-to-date skillsets. A makerspace is a place to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials. It is a one-stop space to build great minds, inspire and promote creativity, flex mental muscles, and get all senses engaged.
Membership is open to tinkerers, creative artists, roboticists, 3D Designers, Startups and everyone who aspire to learn teach, work-on, build and create next generation technology; including software, hardware, electronics, artisan crafts, apps, games, etc. At KOTO makerspace, the demarcation between traditional makers and craftspeople and digital and material hackers are blurred out by bringing people of diverse skill levels together to co-work and engage in projects that benefit individuals and the community at large.
Membership is open to online and offline members through a simple signup process. Members can volunteer in future KOTO Association events to earn extra benefits (e.g. vouchers and discounts) they can also become instructors and licensed makers at the end of their maker training.
