What is the Makerspace?

What is the Makerspace?

The Makerspace is an informal setting in the Collins Memorial Library that allows Puget Sound students, faculty and staff the opportunity to make, create, collaborate, learn and share.

This takes the form of hands-on projects involving no tools to hand tools to high tech tools.

Makerspaces are defined by the makers who use them, but typically they provide the tools and space for individuals to explore, design, create, and modify physical objects in the name of art, research, or creativity. 

It’s a place to develop and create something out of nothing and explore.

When is the Makerspace open?

Hours are subject to change based on staff availability.  Every effort is taken to post changes in a timely manner.
