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.
Fall term 207-18 open training sessions will be held on Mondays at 2 pm and Thursdays at 11 am.
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.
See our Makerspace & 3D printer policies page for more details.
LU instructors are welcome to use the space and equipment with their students. Contact us to set up a training session for you and your class. We're also happy to work with you to integrate the 3D printers and other equipment into your curriculum.
Independent Student Projects
