CENTRAL POINT, Ore. -- The CraterWorks MakerSpace is one step closer to opening. It's been a nearly 3 year project between the Central Point School District and the Central Point based non-profit called Direct Involvement Recreation Teaching or D.I.R.T. Employees are adding the finishing touches to the building. The CraterWorks MakerSpace will be completely open to the public starting Saturday.

Managing partner of the CraterWorks MakerSpace Taneea Browning said it will serve as an opportunity for industry leaders, students, and the community to share tools, resources, and knowledge. Anyone interested in learning how to work with their hands or make things will be able to use the makerspace. Students will also be able to use this space as part of their career and technical education (CTE) curriculum.

"It helps them be able to experiment. They get to touch on all the different wood-working, metal-working as it pertains to their regular course curriculum,” Browning said. “It's giving them the opportunity test it out.

Browning added it will also help students network with people working in the trades and hopefully lead to them gaining successful and meaningful employment.

The grand opening and ribbon cutting is Saturday, May 18th at 10AM. Tours of the space will be available.
