QC Co-Lab & Maker Space!
The QC Co-Lab is a makerspace established in March of 2010 to promote the sciences, technology, engineering, art, and music. The Quad Cities, a five-city metropolitan region situated on the Mid-east Iowa / Northwest Illinois border, is full of a rich artistic culture complimented with a budding technical sector to compliment large centers of industry. The makerspace makes it home near the mighty Mississippi River containing dedicated project rooms including industrial and electrical workshops, library, a classroom and AV studio.
The QC Co-Lab facility is open 24-hours a day 7 days a week to dues paying members of the organization. The QC Co-Lab is available for non-members as well for special events, workshops, and tours can be arranged. Tuesday nights are our regular “Hack Nights” where we invite all members to come work on their projects together to have a second pair of eyes, or just have fun.
