Pikes Peak Makerspace (PPM) is dedicated to supporting our maker community in their creative process by providing shared space, shared tools, materials and a knowledge base to turn their ideas into reality.
We maintain two Design Workstations as well as other computers throughout our space for all our members to use (without any additional required training). Additionally, we have laptop work areas available that were originally study carrels from the Pikes Peak Library District.

Safety First

Members must know the following information:

In case of emergency, call 911

Our physical location is:
