Jeff Sturges, Founder & Conductor

Jeff Sturges enjoys making things and connecting people. Inspired by his experience with the MIT Fab Lab GreenFab program and the NYCResistor hackerspace, he moved to Detroit to build community workshops like Mt. Elliott Makerspace and OmniCorpDetroit. Jeff believes that collaborative making and learning can be much more than just science, technology, engineering, and math education – they can be ways to strengthen our communities and ourselves.
