Action Works is a 501(c)(3) Educational non-profit. We are able to do what we do thanks to hundreds of great volunteers and donations. Our funding comes from individuals that designate their United Way donations to Action Works, direct donations, fees for events, and great companies such as Woodward Inc. and Western Digital. In addition to classes and robotics competitions we are hard at work on Youth Maker opportunities, interactive exhibits, maker spaces for adults and kids, and Maker Faires. Be a part of the fun through volunteering (www.action-works.org/volunteer) and/or tax-deductible financial support. We take donations at this weblink via PayPal.
Imagine 100,000 square feet filled with demonstrations and activities, many built by kids themselves. The October 5, 2013 NoCo Mini Maker Faire had over 120 makers and 3,300 attendees. Action Works' annual October Robotics event was folded in to bring students and their robots to the Faire. The next Faire will be in Denver in May 2014. To see all kinds of maker news, go to www.nocomakerfaire.org. Action Works is a fiscal sponsor of Colorado Mini Maker Faires.
Action Works is working to find funding for space and equipment to give students and adults a place and opportunity to work on electronics, programming, game design and more. The goal is to develop a repeatable model for school districts and communities. If you are interested in investing in this undertaking, please contact liz.rayment at action-works.org
