Our physical space is located in Old Fire Station #4  on Holcomb Bridge Road. Though the station is still owned by the City of Roswell, Roswell FireLabs is responsible for turning the building into a community makerspace, and covering all operating costs including utilities and security. The heart of the project, the leadership team, as well as many members of the community, have worked hard to develop and build out the old fire station into multiple workspaces for many different types of maker projects, STEAM education, and community-oriented curriculum. This transformation has been made possible completely by donations from the community thus far.

We are currently seeking support in making this space the best that it can be. Your support will help us not only encourage lifelong learners, but impact the next generation of makers in our community. We are currently looking for donations of consumables, as well as monetary or equipment donations to furnish the space with tools that will help us build an even stronger STEAM curriculum.
