Makerspace for Engaged Learning

The main purpose of the makerspace is for Lawrence students to gain hands-on learning experiences and have the opportunity to develop a concept from an idea to a physical object. The equipment in the space was funded by an ACM Faculty Career Enhancement grant. Learn more about the purpose of the Lawrence University Interdisciplinary Makerspace on the ACM website.

The Lawrence makerspace is located on the first floor of the Seeley G. Mudd Library, near the videos.

Keep updated on what is happening in the makerspace at our Makerspace website.



How to reserve the space and equipment.

 In order to gain access to the makerspace, students must attend a safety training and a basic use tutorial session. See the policies page for more details on training. 

After completing a training session, reservations are required to use the 3D printers. See the reserving the 3D printers and electronic cutter document to learn how to make reservations using the Outlook Calendar.

If you're a professor who would like to use the space with your class, or if you would like access for an independent assignment, we'd be happy to work with you. Contact us at to make arrangements, or to discuss assignment ideas.

See our Makerspace & 3D printer policies page for more details.
