We're Incorporated!

It's official! South Coast Innovator Labs Ltd. is a Massachusetts corporation! We still have to file for 501(c)3 status.But we're already putting together a fund raising plan to ensure that the space is sustainable. We're also really pushing harder to get the word out there. If you know of anyone in South Eastern Massachusetts who might be interested in joining a makerspace, please send them our way. :)


Notes from 2/1 Meeting

This was an exciting meeting for us. A lot was accomplished. For starters, we've decided to move our meetings to held every Thursday in stead of the alternating every other week schedule we had. The calendar has been updated to reflect this change.

Moving Forward

We've made some significant progress already. At a recent meeting, the group officially adopted by-laws. A member has donated some computers and software for the group to use, and they've been placed in the space we're "squatting" in. We've already wired up the space for network access, too. We've voted to move to the new web presence (the one you are seeing now). We still have a few big hurdles to clear, though. On the radar for the near future are:


Tesla Visit

A couple of us visited Tesla on Wednesday evening. We found the group to be inviting, informative, and really, really cool. We made some great connections and got wonderful new ideas on how to proceed with SCIL and make our hackerspace great! I really encourage members of SCIL to get on over to TESLA and meet those guys. In fact, they're very interested in potentially collaborating on projects in the future, too.

What is a makerspace anyway?

Makerspaces are community oriented physical places, where people with similar interests can meet to socialize, collaborate, share, and work on projects. They often include elements of machine shops, wood working shops, and art studios where creative minds can get together to share resources, tools, and knowledge to build new things. Members usually embody aspect of the DIY ethic and the spaces and members together are part of the larger DIY Movement.
