Vocademy: The Makerspace

Vocademy is a place to learn, a place to make things and a community of like-minded people. Create and learn with Vocademy at this year’s OC Mini Maker Faire – May 9th 2015!

Gene Sherman, Founder/CEO of Vocademy, “Vocademy is an idea that I have had for many years. A place that teaches everyone hands-on, vocational, and DIY (Do It Yourself) skills and use those skills to build, create, and learn anything they desire.”

This past year, Vocademy was invited to participate in the first-ever White House Maker Faire on June 18th as an honored maker and to promote the importance of “making” for our country, our citizens, and especially our kids.




Come down to the OC Mini Maker Faire May 9th and check out some 3d printing by Deezmaker, meet the team, make something or get yourself 3d scanned.


Deezmaker 3D Printing retail shop & Hackerspace in Pasadena, Ca manufactures 3-D printer kits Bukobot & Bukito created by Founder Diego Porqueras. In 2012, Deezmaker was the 1st 3-D printer store on the west coast to open up and the second one in the country. Their in-store hackerspace gives 3-D printing enthusiasts a place to get together and find ways to innovate and create do-it-yourself projects (diy).
