Fall 2023 Heading link

The Makerspace is open for the Fall and we are excited to announce a few new things:

1. Our Bike Repair Shop is open to students. No prior training is required to use the tools in this new workspace that includes bike repair tools, hand tools, and electronics repair. We’re still waiting on a few more tools and will expand over the course of the semester.

2. We have new 3d printers! We’ll be adding more capabilities as the semester goes on. The Gallery is reopened to students.

3. Construction is starting in the Makerspace this semester! We may have areas closed to students during construction.
