The MakerLab is a place where people make connections - we create an environment for students, staff, and faculty to form a community through the use of emerging technologies. With the spirit of interdisciplinary collaboration, they connect their passions and ideas to create new services, products, and ideas always in an effort to benefit the social good.
Together, we've reached great heights! Some of the projects we've created in the MakerLab include 3D printing PPE (personal protective equipment) amidst the COVID-19 crisis, adaptations for special education students, motorized prosthetic arms, creating adaptive technology for paralyzed individuals, 3D printing an army of geese wiht positive messages to improve mental health, and making materials to help visually impaired users understand content.
We empower our users through making to enhance their lives and improve their communities. We make for the social good and with your support, we can make a difference!
