MakerSpace at Alkek One

Do you have the inherent need to create things but don’t know where to start? Come learn how to build and fabricate using the MakerSpace’s new equipment in Alkek One on the first floor of the Alkek Library. Training is completely free!

The MakerSpace is a fabrication shop where you can create almost anything. Learn how to use digital fabrication tools to create physical objects in new ways. We have 3D printers, laser cutters, electronics workbenches, embroidery and sewing machines, and even a waterjet that can cut ANYTHING. The only cost to you is the cost of material that you use, and there is never a charge for time.
