About MakerSpace
Located on the 3rd floor of Science in room 34, used in conjunction with faculty teaching in the SFE is an area where faculty, students and staff from different disciplines can come together to create, collaborate & learn. Once staffed, the open-access, self-service lab today contains two entry level 3d printers, one professional 3d printer and one 3d hand-held scanner. Two computers – one iMac and one Dell Optiplex with the software needed allow faculty, students and staff to create and edit images that can be created on these 3d printers.

We encourage students and the clubs as well as faculty from all disciplines, artists, researchers, STEM subject to encourage their students to visit the lab and begin collaborating and innovating. Over the coming months we hope to add additional resources and services that faculty, students, staff and community members can use, such as Laser Cutters for creating models & prototyping & Plotters to create posters, decals, signs; soldering equipment; etc.
