Wednesday Night Workshops

Since opening in spring 2018 the MakerSpace has held a series of workshops Wednesday evenings from 5:30-7:30 pm.

Each week there is a hands on workshop open to students, faculty, and staff ranging in topics from 3D Printing to welding, but they fill up fast so be sure to sign up. To register check the weekly email for the upcoming event and sign up with the link attached. For an overview of the workshops check the MakerSpace webpage. These are a great way to learn a new skill, meet people from across campus or just get introduced to the space.

Many of the workshops are held by MakerSpace manager Russell Prigodich, but folks from Engineering, Theater and other departments have also contributed their time and expertise to the workshops. Thanks!
