About Us

The School Factory is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that creates value-creating communities and spaces that transform education, economy, and community. Examples of our work include Bucketworks, Geeks without Bounds, the Space Federation, and the Makerspace at Lakewood City Schools.

Space Federation

We support and create community environments like hackerspacesmakerspacesco-working spaces, and other places where diverse communities come together to build, make, and teach one another.

If you are considering launching a collaborative space, or are involved in launching one, managing, leading or supporting such places, we can help. It's our mission to help you make your makerspacehackerspace, co-working space, open democracy lab, citizen science lab, project collaborative or creative collaborative healthy and sustainable. Learn more

Emergentcy Schools

We support and create programs that engage people in the creation of communities of practice--focused on a culture of creativityconstructivism, and project-based learning.

If you have developed or operate an event, program, class, workshop series, or facilitation pattern that develops learning in humans, get in touch. Our mission is to support you and help develop the future of learning. We are especially interested in activities that increase equity, develop STEAM learning, create healthy sustainable community, and economic sustainability and growth.
