About Us

The University's MakerSpace opened in 2016 to help our students, faculty, and staff to join the growing worldwide "maker movement" with a goal of expanding the ways they learn, teach, and work on research -- regardless of subject area. While our main goal is towards educational and research purposes, we have found that personal passion projects are the best way to learn new technologies. For that reason, the MakerSpace's services are free for any project you are working on; we don't charge for materials, equipment time, or consultation. We've worked with clients in subjects as diverse as Biology, Poetry, Electrical Engineering, Art, English as a Second Language, Entrepreneurship, and more. Contact us today to chat about how we can help you too!
