MakerSpace


About Us:

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, vinyl cutting, sewing, arts and crafts, and creative engineering.

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. Never been to the MakerSpace? Stop by for a tour (Open Monday-Friday 10am-6pm).  



Workshops:

Both equipment certification workshops and creative workshops are held regularly each week throughout the academic year. These are posted in the daily digest, on social media, around campus, and on the activities page.

Sign up for workshops using this link or reserve time to work on your own project (see project ideas here). Workshops are open to all students, faculty, and staff.
