The MakerSpace is a collaborative workspace for making, learning, exploring, and sharing.  We invite kids and adults to engage with our faculty and interns while tinkering with a variety of equipment and supplies, from 3D printing, animation, paper engineering, and laser cutting to simple puppet-making and dynamic character design.
