Welcome to the Central Marin Young Makers club. Like other Young Makers clubs, our mission is to inspire and encourage the next generation of makers, creators, and innovators. We do this by pairing youth who are passionate about building things with experienced mentors. Projects from last year were Saphira, a fire breathing dragon, a flaming electric chopper, and a table that doubles as a hamster habitat.

We are hosted out of the DeRose Family garage in San Rafael, otherwise known as "The Lab". We meet for build sessions most Saturday mornings between February and May, with the frequency increasing as Maker Faire approaches.
