Cherokee Makerspace is where makers and tinkerers of all ages can share ideas, build prototypes and incubate a new business.

Where Great Ideas Come to Life

From remote-controlled adaptive wheelchairs to competition robots, the tools and equipment we've accumulated over the years have nurtured the minds of the young and the young at heart.

Adaptive Wheelchairs
Adaptive Wheelchairs

This started out as an off-road wheelchair project for a girl with spina bifida. We've made more than a few since then, and one of them even made it to the movies!

FIRST Robotics in Acworth
Firestorm Robotics

Before we became Cherokee Makerspace, we were Etowah Electric Eagles, a high school robotics team.

Now, as Firestorm Robotics, kids learn how to run a robotics company that designs, builds, and programs 120-pound robots and compete with other kids worldwide. Sounds like fun? It really is!
