What is MakerSpace?

The Greenbelt Makerspace is a non-profit activity center located at 125 Centerway, Greenbelt MD 20770. If you know Old Greenbelt, we are on Roosevelt Center Plaza next to the City Theatre. We opened in April of 2013 and have worked hard to develop resources and programs to engage our members in activities related to science, technology, arts, and crafts. As of 2014, membership in the facility is free. We depend on voluntary donations from “sustaining members”, and general donations, grants, and sponsorships. GreenSTEMs Inc., a non-profit Maryland corporation formed by Eva Fallon and George Boyce in 2010.
