Steam Junction is located in downtown Burlington and draws makers from all over Alamance County. In addition to some equipment not found in the Hub, Steam Junction offers workshops and classes run by local makers! (The classes have a small fee associated with them, usually around $10/hour.)
Steam Junction is members-only. Starting on Sept. 1, Elon University will have 5 floating memberships available to all Elon students. The memberships will allow any 5 Elon students to use Steam Junction at once.
For hours, see the Steam Junction Webpage.
