A makerspace is a location where people with common interests can meet, socialize and/or collaborate. Makerspaces can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of machine shops, workshops and/or studios where makers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things. The makerspace provides the tools, the makers bring their creativity.
The Small Hall Makerspace is located in Small Hall 143. Although this places us in the physical confines of the physics department, use of the makerspace is not limited to physics students.
To safeguard the equipment, supplies, and (most importantly) the projects in progress, we have instituted some limited access restrictions. You will need to get a user card from Prof. Wouter Deconinck or Prof. Josh Erlich. The preferred way for users to access the makerspace during business hours is to check out a daytime key from the physics main office (Small Hall 123). A very limited set of personal keys are available to students who are student club officials, or who are working on active projects that require evening access. These keys can be requested by filling out the online form and notifiying [[physics|makerspace]].
