Columbia Gadget Works is the original hackerspace in Central Missouri. We are a group of makers, DIYers, hackers, builders, circuit benders, garage inventors, and basement scientists who like to explore science, technology, arts, crafts, and the interstitial space between. The current form of CGW arose in late 2010, and we've been happily hacking ever since. In February of 2013, we began renting garage space in an industrial area off Paris Rd in Columbia to serve as the base of operations for our world domination plans.

All are welcome to our regular events and hack nights, but only dues-paying members have 24/7 access to the space. We encourage you to come by and meet our group, but in the meantime feel free to learn more about us and our equipment.
