FCFI is an approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We are working to build a collaborative community where Makers, Entrepreneurs, Families, Individuals, and Children will learn new skills, start a business, be entertained, and build a culture of making new and innovative things.
It's a MAKERSPACE!
Your Donation will help us; host summer camps for kids, build our computer lab, purchase much needed equipment, or sponsor a membership for an underprivileged family.
We thank you in advance for your generosity!
HOW THE MAKER MOVEMENT CONNECTS STUDENTS TO ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY
Eighth-grader Quin uses his passion for electronics to teach fellow students about 3D printing, arduinos, and other hands-on lessons in STEAM skills.
FCFI will foster an environment of sharing and collaboration between the different sectors of our community. From business (large and small), education (K-gray), government (national, state, and local), and private (anyone that wants to grow their knowledge base).
Maker … a person that makes or produces something.
By creating a culture of sharing ideas and making, we will all work together to research, design, and then create needful things or products to sell.
Since startup companies lack many resources, experience and networks, incubators provide services which helps them get through initial hurdles in starting up a business. These hurdles include space, funding, legal, accounting, computer services ...
We look forward to bringing all aspects of our community together. We will strive to provide a clean and safe environment for sharing and learning. We will regularly have theme nights, special interests meetings, game nights ...
We understand that there are less and less environments where a family can gather to work on projects and ideas.
We look forward to providing that space to our community.
FCFI will create and provide project-based learning curricula, after school programs, day camps, and drop-in projects for parents and children to work on together. Kids today need places to learn hands-on skills and crafts.
Your first place is home and family. Your second place is work. FCFI is a third place to go to find new things, friends, ideas and edutainment. We will regularly have theme nights, special interests meetings, game nights, movie nights, group projects and anything else we can think up.
What is STEAM?
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Though it seems like a compilation of five academic fields, it is really an educational approach to teaching and learning STEM subjects through the arts. Basically, it intentionally integrates academic studies with arts disciplines. LEARN MORE
