About Pikes Peak Makerspace

• We are a membership composed of Builders, Tinkerers, Engineers, Artists, Entrepreneurs, Designers, and Educators all mashed up and revolutionizing creativity in the Pikes Peak Region. We provide a facility with space and equipment for people to create physical items for fun and for education. PPM also is a place to gather interested people for all manner of classes and instruction.

• We are tapped into and support the Colorado Springs startup community.

• Pikes Peak Makerspace is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

The famous inventor Nikola Tesla has some local history in Colorado Springs.

In the 1890s, Tesla conducted high-voltage, high-frequency power experiments here. A small plaque on Pikes Peak Avenue just west of downtown Colorado Springs (and only a minute or so by car from our Makerspace) recognizes his accomplishments. These days you might catch a member's Tesla car, other electric car or electric bicycle in our parking lot.
