Committees are voluntary groups, formed by members in order to achieve certain goals.
To join this committee, contact the committee chairperson. See Rules and Policies#Committees for more information.


The Science Committee's responsibilities are to:

  • Promote and support the sciences at DMS
  • Maintain the order, organization, safety, cleanliness, and utility of the Science Lab area.
  • Organizationally and administratively support science related classes


Science Committee exists to educate members in scientific, engineering and technical subjects not covered by other committees or groups at Dallas Makerspace, based on member interest and available resources. It facilitates this goal through its children Special Interest Groups (SIGs) by providing resources for SIG projects and areas of study.
