The Makerspace at Puget Sound

The Makerspace is a collaborative creative space for  Puget Sound  students, faculty and staff interested in doing hands-on  projects in an informal  setting at the Collins Library.  It’s a collaborative work space  for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools. It’s a place to develop and create something out of nothing and explore.

The 2017-2018 year will serve as our pilot year to determine what the interests of the community are. Our goals for the pilot project include:

1. Foster a culture of creating

2 Encourage informal learning 

3. Support peer-to-peer learning and sharing

For the fall semester, many pilot projects using the Makerspace will be integrated into specific class projects.  We will also host a number of drop-in sessions so you can learn more about the equipment and potential for use.  In addition, we will schedule workshops so that you can make and create!

We encourage your input about how this space might develop and invite you to share your thoughts and ideas by emailing
