​Background on Featured Project

The concept of makerspaces is beginning to shape the language and mental images of those responsible for the character of learning in undergraduate settings. For many, makerspaces are synonymous with product design and 3D printers. But what if a makerspace could be more than that? A place for deep learning, a place to connect disciplines, a place to unleash creativity; an ideal environment in which 21st century learners become the creative, resilient, informed risk-takers that make a difference in the world in which they live and work.
