Castlemakers, Inc. is an all volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit group dedicated to creating an innovative community of makers who promote and encourage scientific and creative skills through building projects, education, mentorship, sharing, and relationships with other organizations.
Our physical Makerspace is located at 19 E. Franklin St. in Greencastle, Indiana. But it’s really about the people that give their time to give back to the community.

Chris Hebb has been interested in getting a makerspace going in Greencastle since late 2012 and also enjoys Robotics competitions. He is a long time hacker and ‘maker’ with too many hobbies & not enough time. His current interests include 3D printering, scanning and photogrammetry, and learning micro:bit/raspberry pi programming. It was a little too warm last winter for the snow gun made from an air compressor/power washer project, but there’s always this winter…
Brian Howard is a computer science assistant professor at DePauw University with experience in computer graphics, music, programming, & mathematics. He’s taught both adults and kids about programming, math, and handbells.
Dr. Savage was originally an electrical engineer before going into medicine. He’s been known to call from going-out-of-business Radio Shack’s to ask if we needed parts!
Jacob Hale, besides teaching physics at DePauw University, is the father of a large family of makers. His interests are too many to list, but he is a talented woodworker and taught several makerspace classes in CNC, sensors, and SBC’s like arduinos.
