Make Omaha is a FREE family-friendly, innovative, and technology showcase celebrating local tech-driven makers, inventors, and businesses who are using state-of-the-art tools in their work.


Meet Ben Beck with the Omaha Children’s Museum

Introduce Yourself! – Who are you and what does your organization do?

I am the Off-Site Education and Event Coordinator at the Omaha Children’s Museum. We will be there to represent the museum, primarily the “Tinker Factory”, which is the museum’s open maker space where guests of all ages can build and create using various tools and materials.

What do you make?

The mission of Omaha Children’s Museum is to engage the imagination and create excitement about learning.

What are you planning to show at Make Omaha?

We are bringing our Makedo tools to build fantastic creations using spare cardboard.

What are you looking forward to seeing at Make Omaha from other participants?

We are often so inspired at these events. It’s hard to know where/from who we’ll get that inspiration. It is never the same. It’s always different. We never know what we will see, but it is doubtless that this event will be no exception!

What tech/maker-type stuff are you interested in getting in the future?


Anything else you’d like to add?

You guys are terrific!

Come see Ben Beck and all our other makers at Make Omaha on Saturday, October 9th from 10am – 3pm!
