We host free classes and events in Northern Alabama to teach people how to turn their ideas into reality using 3D Printing.


New technologies like 3D printing can empower everyone to make their own products; but it’s often intimidating to get started.

We’re here to help.

We’ve gathered local 3D printing experts, makers, artists and teachers to help educate and empower the public to begin making their own products locally.

SPORE is an initiative of a 501(c)(3) non-profit called Mycelium, formed to Support Public Outreach, Resources, and Education.

What we do

We host classes around 3D Printing to show people how to make their own products, and host classes to showcase what the community is doing in 3D Printing. By educating and empowering locals to begin producing their own products, we hope to stimulate STEM activities in youth and the local community.

How we think we can make a difference

Teach people how to make their own products

Using what we’re learning through our non-profit, Mycelium, we are setting up a curriculum around utilizing technology like 3D printing to turn product ideas into reality. We teach classes at the local library to refine these lessons. We then share what we learn in our Resources

Transition towards production independence

By distributing the education for how to use 3D Printing make ideas real, we hope to empower people around the world to take back their production independence.
