Our Team

MakersBox is a community Maker Space, with a vision to Inspire people to Innovate and Invent. We started in October 2015 as an idea, and got incubated at SproutBox to now where we run 3 Maker Spaces, in Delhi, Noida and Karnal. We have in the past few months of our operations held weekend maker classes for children from 4 to 94 years old, worked with them on concepts of innovation, rapid prototyping, to making Internet Connected Devices.

At the heart of our operations is our Home Maker Space, where we work on all our designs, develop our curriculum for courses that we run and have pure fun making things. Located in Nehru Place. Our Space is open from 9 AM to 9PM, Mondays through Saturdays and we offer Membership Plans for tinkers of all ages, whether you want to use Machine tools, to 3D Printers or even our Laser Cutters and Etching Machines.

We also operate a Maker Space in Karnal, Haryana in a Public Private Partnership with the Government of Haryana. Spread across 2500 square foot, our Lab Features a full dedicated classroom section, a store with inventory of tools to open source hardware, wood to a waste storage facility where we store old toys and work on them. Our lab is fully fitted with 3D Printers, Lego Kits, Tools, Soldering Work Stations and other things that children of Government and Private Schools of the City of Karnal can come and use for free. Our Karnal Facility is open Tuesday to Sunday, 9 AM to 6PM.

Our 3rd Lab, is our Mini Maker Space in Noida, Uttar Pradesh. Located inside Dr. Ruhi Foundation school, our space works with children in the age group of 5 to 10, teaching them programming, electronics, robotics and 3D Printing. Our Noida Lab is open from 8 AM to 2PM, Monday through Saturday and is open for Children from the Slums in the vicinity as well as the students of the School. With an emphasis on the girl child, we have had some great enthusiasm shown by children in this space and they are busy innovating and hopefully will one day become inventors.

MakersBox has also worked and launched a few DIY Kits and is enabling access to tools and mechanics that a maker may need, though one can easily buy an Arduino Board or a Raspberry Pi anywhere, our team has put in efforts to bundle kits from Mechanical sets of Screws, Nuts & Bolts to our 3D Based Robotics and Arduino Learning Kits.

Our goals are aligned with Prime Minister Narender Modi ji’s vision of Make In India and Skill India, and as an effort of this, we have been working across Government schools and under-privileged schools for children on working with them to improve their skills and for them to look at Making as option.
