Help A Mama Hack: STEM Girl Friday

Before there was The Maker Mom, there was a veeeery short-lived blog called Arduino Mom. When I launched it (thankfully without much fanfare, since it morphed into this blog just a few weeks later) I searched online for like-minded moms and came across The Mothership, a cool hackerspace for moms.

Their site in Berkeley, CA is a mom-friendly makerspace (can you say dedicated nursing area?) and business incubator. It's the world's first women's hackerspace and both the space and concept leave me drooling. They're looking to fill their lovely space with a few more pieces of equipment and tools as well as expand their outreach program, so they've launched a Kickstarter campaign.

There's no need for me to blather on, this video says it all.
They've actually met their initial goal and are now working on their STRETCH goal.

Cool, huh? I love this and I'm sure it's just the beginning for these daring, creative women. I can't wait to see what comes out of their space.
