On this campus, we have tinkerers, builders, designers, inventors, crafters, and thinkers. We have people with ideas. The Makerspace is an innovative workspace where these ideas can become realities. This space is dedicated to providing students and staff with the tools, space, and resources they need to develop, design, collaborate, and make.
Who can use the space?
The MakerSpace is open to Lake Area Technical College students and staff from all programs and disciplines. It is meant to foster interdisciplinary collaboration. Stop by to learn what someone else knows. Stop by to teach someone else what you know. Learn and create together.
What could you make?
Anything! Have an idea for a new product? You could 3D print a prototype. Want to start your own business? Make t-shirts, mugs, and other items to advertise. Want to make an extra special gift for someone? Etch their name into a glass using our laser, create a card with the Cricut, or 3D print a keychain, phone case, or Darth Vader bust. You could sew a sweater or solder a board. You could solder a board to light up the sweater you just sewed. The possibilities are endless.
Want 3D print ideas?
Check out this website: www.thingiverse.com. Many of the items on this website can be easily scaled to the appropriate size and printed off on the Makerspace 3D printers. Find an item you want, and stop by the Makerspace when one of our Makers is available; they will show you how to use the printers.
No summer hours.
