The MakerSpace is a vibrant, student-oriented place for creativity, prototyping and experimentation, located on the first floor of the Dion Student Center. With a variety of tools and equipment readily at hand, and trained student staff available, members of the campus community can learn maker-centric software and hardware, and experiment with laser-cutting, 3D printing, fabric art, and creative engineering. The Campus Store carries a line of supplies used for personal projects.
The MakerSpace is collaborative and interdisciplinary in nature, and supports STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) academic projects. Classes meet to use the resources within the space on occasion, or sometimes on a regular basis. Both equipment certification workshops and creative workshops are held regularly during the academic year. Please contact Eric Roy (654-2338) for information about teaching in the space.
