Ask a Guru!

Our gurus are the heart and soul of the Idea Center. They volunteer their time to help others turn their ideas into real-life products. They're the resident experts and are here to happily help with any awesome or crazy idea thrown their way.

We're always looking to grow our guru ranks. If you've got a maker spirit, love to collaborate, and have some time to spare, we would love to meet you.

In our opinion,

We've got a pretty great space.

The Idea Center is like your 21st-century workshop. We've got computers, CNC milling machines, 3D printers, soldering irons, even lasers (yeah, real lasers!) and space to spread out and focus on making your awesome ideas into awesome realities.

Located in the Arts Wing of Blue Hill Consolidated School in Blue Hill, Maine, there is always a steady flow of enthusiastic makers. Why not come by and check it out yourself?
