Vector Space is a non-profit community makerspace. Our founders and staff are passionate about making, and teaching others to make. We believe the most rewarding things in life are hands-on experiences shared with others.
Vector Space is a makerspace and community workshop with the mission to build an open and collaborative community that fosters innovation, creativity, and the pursuit of science based knowledge.
We offer 24/7 access to users ages 18+. Enrollment is open 4x per year and begins with a tour, orientation, and safety training. Members enjoy 12,000 square feet of shared workspace and equipment, a community of fellow makers, and discounts on classes.
Maker Faire Lynchburg is thrilled to be back on the campus of Randolph College on April 3, 2022.
Join us for a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for makers to show hobbies, experiments, projects, and products.
The makerspace is buzzing with activity this month, as many of our members create beautiful, small batch goods for YOUR holiday shopping! With many local faires and festivals coming up, we've compiled a list of times and places you can shop for maker-made goods from LYH this season.
You might be surprised how much math can be found in a makerspace. Making a table with angled legs and you need to know how long to cut them? Math. Cutting pentagons for a DIY soccer ball of a known circumference and you need to know how long each side should be? Math. Fitting up gears of differing sizes that still mesh without too much contact pressure? That's right, math.
We're hosting Lynchburg's first Mathathon on August 27! This 13.1 hour event - a Math Half Marathon - will bring together our community's math and computer experts to solve as many Project Euler problems as they can. YOU can join the fun!
Teen Summer Camps: Now Enrolling!
This year our Maker Faire Lynchburg planning team put together a series of videos to take viewers behind the scenes with local makers. At a time when we could not gather in person, we wanted to bring you closer than ever to the making process. We conducted more than 20 interviews, shop tours, tutorials, and more to give you a peek at the motivation and momentum that drives local makers. In planning a virtual event we were hard-set against creating content you could find elsewhere online, or redundant stories that have already been told.
