makerspace

Memorial’s Makerspace – part of The Commons

PURPOSE:

A makerspace is a place where people can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials. Our Commons makerspace is physically flexible and contains equipment & supplies that allow students to explore their creativity. It gives students the resources to conceive an idea and bring it into the physical world. In addition, it allows students to take two or more seemingly unrelated ideas and combine them, encouraging true innovation.
