Interim Board Member and Officer Elections

Welcome to Bridgewire, Northern Nevada’s Makerspace

Bridgewire is organized exclusively for charitable, educational, scientific, and recreational purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 (or the corresponding section of any future United States Internal Revenue law). Its mission is to foster a collaborative environment wherein people can explore and create intersections between technology, science, art, and culture. We have come together to create a community resource for creating, learning and sharing. We have provided a space to work on projects, an open community classroom and a forum for sharing knowledge and ideas. We will focus our efforts on enabling members to realize projects themselves for the benefit of the community and individuals.

What is Bridgewire?

Bridgewire is a member-funded, non-profit Makerspace/Hackerspace/Workshop located in Sparks, NV serving the Reno-Sparks area. We are open 24/7 to all members and open to the public every Thursday from 6pm-9pm during Open Space Night. Please come down and see what we’re all about or participate in whatever project we have going on at the time. If Thursday nights don’t work for you, or if you have any questions, please contact us and ask to schedule an appointment.

Bridgewire RNO Project First Meeting

I am pleased to announce and to invite you all to the first meeting of Bridgewire RNO (short for Reno Near Earth Observatory). This meeting begins the discussion and is the first planning session of our (first?) mission to 100,000 feet, the edge of the atmosphere. We will be using a weather balloon filled with hydrogen to accomplish this, carrying a payload of yet to be determined sensors and devices. We are planning to have a few different types of missions with a variety of goals. Have an idea? Think about it. This should be fun for anyone with an interest and is suitable for all ages, so bring your kids. Both Bridgewire Members and Non-Members are invited to participate. Come have some high-altitude fun.
