Welcome to the Parachute Factory!

Parachute Factory is a community makerspace in Las Vegas, NM. Our goal is to promote a new framework for teaching and learning. We utilize a maker-centered curriculum to build opportunities for local learners to fall back in love with learning. We believe that every learner has the capacity to not only learn, but teach. The old standard of one expert dispersing information to HIS flock is tired, and frankly a bad fit for most people.

Everybody brings expertise to the table. And inside each and every one of us is a desire to share that expertise with a greater audience. By respecting individual contributions to our community, we are elevating that very same community toward maker empowerment.
