" Great place for creative minds "

I've been a member of 712innovations for almost a year. I love seeing the different projects people are working on each time I go in. The members share a diverse range of projects and skill sets, and people are happy to share their knowledge with one another. 712i provides a variety of amenities including WIFI and a kitchen with all the necessities in case you're working on a long project. 712i has fostered a great environment for creative minds. It's a great community to be a part of. I love that 712i is downtown Topeka.

"Excellent for Beginning Makers, Welcoming Environment" 

July 2017

I've been a member at 712 for almost two years now, and I've had nothing but pleasant experiences here. The staff is very knowledgeable and also willing to teach on virtually any subject that the makerspace has facilities for. Karen Christilles, the director, also does a wonderful job of bringing local opportunities to the attention of members that may benefit them, and so you feel like the staff takes a genuine interest in your work there. I personally learned how to 3D print and also how to operate a laser engraver at 712 so far - both skills which have bolstered my creative capabilities. -Location is excellent, in the hub of downtown Topeka while still maintaining a sort of hole in the wall appearance to prevent overcrowding from visitors. -WiFi is also very strong, though you may have to look around the space for the password at first. -The environment is extremely productive - When you actually proceed into the workspace, most members are respectful and keep a calm, quiet environment to promote thinking and work. -Comfort is another factor they excel at - Cushy swivel chairs are available en masse, which have come in handy on nights I have been working there late (The makerspace is open 24/7 to members) -The community is friendly, as I stated earlier. Staff members are helpful and are willing to organize an education opportunity if you're interested in learning more about a skill. (Ex. soldering) -The community also comes well stocked with refreshments - a vending machine with snacks, a Keurig coffee maker, a water cooler, and a large bathroom space dedicated to 712. All in all, Topeka is lucky to have such a unique makerspace, and I can comfortably say that I and the rest of the Topeka community would not be at the same place with the same opportunities if not for 712. I would recommend a membership to a friend with a creative project in a heartbeat.

"Favorite Place to Work" 

July 2017

712i is a 24 hour maker space that provides me a professional environment to get away from the typical "work from home" scenario. It helps me focus on my projects and gives me more than enough resources for any tasks.
