The Eureka! Factory is a collaborative of creative individuals and business partners who believe in the power of community driven innovation to help people move from passive consumption to empowered and active creation of their future and ours. Together, we work as consultants and program developers for libraries and other organizations throughout central Florida, and play and learn through a variety of build projects. What We Do We design Makerspaces for Public Places in libraries and other community areas; annually host Gulf Coast MakerCon, the Florida West Coast's oldest and largest Celebration of the DIY Inventive Spirit; ROBOTICON Tampa Bay, a FIRST youth robotics off-season Showcase event; Instructables Build Nights; are active community organizers of Code for Tampa Bay Brigade and partners for TEDxTampaRiverwalk. At Maker Faire Orlando At our Maker Faire Orlando booth, you can try your hand at some simple electronics, play with some of our Instructables projects, make some noise and learn about our events, projects and programs and how we can help bring creative spaces and programming to your community.
Eureka! Factory specializes in the development of makerspaces in public places, and produces creative community events like Gulf Coast MakerCon and ROBOTICON Tampa Bay. Creative Partner Terri Willingham is the recent co-author of the book, Makerspaces in Libraries, for the series “Library Technology Essentials” (Rowman and Littlefield, 2015).
