Inspired by “the maker movement,” our makerspace provides a place to learn new skills as well as a forum for sharing and exchanging ideas with others.

How It Works:

① Request Orientation

Attend a “Safety Guide” Orientation session which grants you access to the makerspace.

Work in the Makerspace

Spend time in the makerspace exploring our resources and equipment.

③ “Make” New Things

Learn new skills, bring something novel into the world, and meet your peers along the way!

Now that you know “how it works” you can sign up for one of our “Safety Guide” Orientation sessions via our Calendar of Events.

Orientations are usually offered at “Free Hour” on Monday and Wednesday.

Additional appointments will be made available; check back routinely for flexible dates.

Dates are typically scheduled 2-3 weeks in advance pending staff availability.
