CREATE is a nonprofit community of makers committed to improving the world with science and technology and the transformative power of quality art. Our mission is to engage the Aberdeen area with science, technology, engineering, art, and math (“STEAM”) by developing programming and facilities for young people, individuals and institutions to learn, explore, innovate, and Create.

Our Services

The first of its kind in northeast South Dakota, our Makerspace is a place where creative minds come to collaborate and innovate. We are equipped with a 3D printer, soldering stations, microelectronics, sewing machines and ample room to set your imagination free. Coming soon, the entirety of the 5th floor of the iconic Citizens Building in Aberdeen will house our Makerspace. This expansion will provide us with even more opportunities to serve South Dakota with STEAM-enrichment classes and outstanding entrepreneurial opportunities. Join us.


From intro to programming to turning play dough into electricity, our classes are fun for all ages.

"Upon my first visit to CREATE I was helped instantly: not only did they have the resources I needed to complete my project, but they were also eager to assist me with any challenges In encountered. My project was to make environmentally-friendly solutions to harmful, oil-based plastic products of today. Not only was I able to complete my project, with their help I was able to push it higher than I had anticipated, winning two awards at the regional science fair held at NSU."
