What is a MakerSpace?

A MakerSpace is a space that allows for creativity and innovation to occur. It’s a shared workspace that lets people team up and create. The MakerSpace is where makers and builders join forces to conceptualize, prototype and collaborate on projects that solve problems and influence change. To encourage and support this creativity, our MakerSpace will include:

  • 3D Printers
  • 3D Scanners
  • Arduinos and Microcontrollers
  • Raspberry Pi’s and Microprocessors
  • Circuit Board Printers
  • Gaming computers
  • Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
  • Textile Machining
  • Laser Cutters
  • Information and Networking Science
