Blugold Makerspace

Let your creativity run wild

A makerspace is a place where people come together to create. We provide tools, expertise, community, and resources to help you create physical and digital objects. Whether you want to build your own remote control car, construct a papier mache sculpture, or create a unique Halloween costume, the McIntyre Library Makerspace is here to help you. The Makerspace is available to the entire campus community: students, faculty, and staff.

Would you like a tour? Need some help on a project? Want to use this resource with your class? Just want to talk to one of the staff?
