EASE- European Association of STEAM Educators is a non-profit association whose activity has the ultimate objective of helping and enhancing the work of all educators and teachers in terms of promoting STEAM skills with children, young people and adults in formal and non-formal education. Join our network!

We are Swindon Makerspace, a not-for-profit registered C.I.C. (Community Interest Company). We like to break and make things. Many different things – robots, aircraft, computers, electronics – anything goes.

Originally formed as the Swindon Hackspace in June 2012, as a weekly meeting for those interested in making, breaking, and fixing things. Up until March 2016, we were hosted by the Museum of Computing, and had free use of the basement space. However, our expansion was held back by the limited space available and no 24×7 access.

After nearly 4 years, we took the plunge and signed a lease on a dedicated industrial unit to allow our membership and tool base to grow. We’re now working hard to make that space as functional and well featured as possible, whilst drawing in new members to make sure we’re sustainable.

Members work on a range of projects that usually involve electronic hardware, software programming, and mechanical assembly.

We encourage each other to run informal workshops on topics such as Solar Power, Laser Cutting, OpenSCAD, and 3D Printing. We also run workshops for the public several times a year – check our Events calendar for details.
