Makerspace Urbana started five years ago in 2009. It is an open community lab. It is family-friendly and anyone can come in, socialize, and work on their projects. While at the Makerspace, you can get advice on your own projects, or you can help others with their projects. They have several workshops throughout the year. In the past, some have included brewing your own beer, pewterworks, robots, and so much more.

Their major event for the year is their Summer Make-cation. The offerings at the Summer Make-cation change each year depending on who volunteers to offer a class. There is a small fee involved to pay for materials.

The mascot of the makerspace is the squirrel. When they received their first 3D printer, they just started playing around and creating squirrels. Before they knew it, squirrels had taken over the makerspace. Squirrels can now be seen photobombing makerspace photos, arranged throughout the makerspace or around town on makerspace stickers.
