Mid Mo Maker Labs is creating a place to learn and experiment with tech and more!
Mission Statement"M3 Labs will bring tools, technology, and guidance to our community, to stimulate learning, innovation, and curiosity in an affordable and fun manner."
About USFounded by a group of people who love to learn and tinker with technology, we saw a need that was not met. A place was needed that allows people to have access to tools, knowledge, and technology that are not easily affordable for one person or one family. M3 Labs is the start of a makerspace, working to create a local location that allows the youth and adults alike a place to experiment and grow their ideas. For us, it's about the people, their ideas and their enjoyment of learning new skills and technologies. We want to help promote the enjoyment of learning and scientific experimentation in the future and current generations alike. Inviting in new ideas and creative processes to create a new level of inventors and innovations.
Our VisionWe envision growing into an establishment with designated areas for woodworking, metal crafting, electrical design, computer programming and design, Fine Art areas and more. Where you can have a designated area for your projects and learn from the surrounding people or Teach other members what you know. We want to grow into a self-sustaining building where the electricity is produced by clean energy, and our community gardens created and cared for by our members, this will donate food to its members and those in need. Showing our new generation how to successfully be self-sustaining if they want or need to be.
Our GrowthOver the course of the next several years, we plan to grown our small makerspace to a larger operation that meets our vision. Creating a value for our service will make this happen, we will start with classes, technology hardware and software, electronics lab and some smaller equipment to build the establishment. As we grow in members we will grow our operations, branching out to offer more tools and area to work in. This is going to take a strong effort on all our founders and members parts to help spread the word and create something that is truly exceptional and beneficial.
Why?We are doing this because our passion is creating! Whether that be creating a new gadget, website, idea or kindling a passion in someone to love creating, exploring and being curious. There is nothing like this around our area, with increased population, overcrowded schools and I in our world we need a place to gather as a community to listen, build and grow without judgment or destructive criticism. We are doing this for our current and future generations.
What is a makerspace?A makerspace is a place that people with like minds can gather and work together to learn and create awesome projects. It’s a place that allows for experiments, for innovation, allowing for a creative outlet through tools and materials that may not be available for a majority of people who have amazing ideas and no place to build them. Most of all a Makerspace is a community of people that love to help each other learn and grow, a place where impossible becomes plausible and you can freely learn in a hands-on manner or just build and experiment, the choice is yours in a makerspace.

When we reach this goal we can open up a physical makerspace in Jefferson City, Mo. Equiping it with computers, electronics and tools, and some 3D printers.
