Welcome to the Tech Valley Center of Gravity Wiki,
our public repository of projects, rules, processes, and knowledge.

Who We Are

Tech Valley Center of Gravity is a membership-based non-profit Makerspace serving New York's Capital Region, including Albany, Columbia, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady and Schoharie counties. Our membership is a diverse cadre of makers, creators, artists, engineers and entrepreneurs who work together and share tools and resources which might ordinarily be out of reach. We use these resources to collaborate on individual and community projects in order to promote and cross-pollenate technology and art, while working and experimenting on innovative ideas to encourage learning within our community. We also provide co-working space and serve as the home to two independent not-for-profit organizations: Albany Can Code and Tech Valley Game Space.

How to Find Us

We occupy the lower level and first floor of The Quackenbush Building, a beautifully renovated former department store on the corner of 3rd Street and Broadway in the heart of downtown Troy. Our mailing address is:
