The Maker State

New Mexico


The goal of the New Mexico Makerstate Initiative is to excite NM communities about STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). The Makerstate Initiative encourage participants to reclaim New Mexico’s rich heritage of making, and introduces exciting new technologies in a fun and accessible way.

The New Mexico Makerstate Initiative is led by Parachute Factory, a community makerspace in rural Las Vegas, NM, in partnership with the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, the New Mexico State Library, New Mexico Highlands University, AmeriCorps, and local libraries and museums across the state.
