StartUp Studio is a museum makerspace at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science in Albuquerque, New Mexico, founded in 2012 by the museum in partnership with the NMHU Department of Media Arts & Technology. Our goal is to promote digital literacy and STEAM learning (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) through workshops led by NMHU faculty and interns.
The name StartUp Studio comes from the exhibit Start Up: The History of Personal Computing at museum, which pays tribute to Albuquerqueâ€™s important role in launching the personal computing and hacking revolution that is celebrated in the StartUp exhibition. StartUp Studio activities are designed to encourage hands-on electronics discovery built around the concepts of circuitry, programming, interactivity, and of course, the joy of making new things and repurposing old ones. StartUp Studio received seed funding from LANS, the consortium than operates Los Alamos National Laboratory.
