Huntsville STEAM Works is a new 501(c)(3) Educational Non-Profit that will soon be in full operation on the first floor of the North Wing of Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment. Huntsville STEAM Works is centered around education in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. It’s our goal to provide the tools and know-how needed for our neighbors in Madison County and North Alabama to reach their creative and professional goals.
What will happen to MindGear Labs?
Huntsville STEAM Works has acquired much of the tools, machines, resources and intellectual property of MindGear Labs. All of MindGear’s previously planned camps and other classes will continue as normal throughout 2017 and into 2018. MindGear, their founder Rob Adams, and the fantastic MindGear team will continue to be a crucial part of Huntsville STEAM Works.
When will Huntsville STEAM Works open?
We announced our acquisition of MindGear Labs in February 2017 and are making progress to move our operations downstairs in the coming months. We will begin offering opportunities within our space in the coming weeks and months, and we are targeting mid-April 2017 for a Grand Opening event. Until we fully transition to the new space, we will continue operations in the MindGear studio on the second floor of the North Wing.
What new things will Huntsville STEAM Works offer?
The new 5,800 square foot space in Lowe Mill will allow Huntsville STEAM works to provide much more to our visitors in the future. We will bring back memberships for folks to work on their own projects! We will have an expanded capacity for tools and workshop space, allowing us to explore new areas for everyone’s educational enrichment. We are in the process of developing new avenues, and are looking for volunteers and feedback!
I’d like to volunteer with Huntsville STEAM Works. How can I help?
As an Educational Non-Profit serving our neighbors in the North Alabama area, we are always going to be on the lookout for volunteers. We’re excited to work with professionals in the area who have the know-how to lead workshops, teach classes, and pass on their knowledge to the next generation. We will be announcing details very soon about an Information Night at Lowe Mill where we can touch base with everyone interested in volunteering, so keep an eye out on our website and social media feeds!
