About 30 faculty, admin, staff, and of course, students, met up to get an update on the planning and working on our proposal. Updates included additional curriculum ideas, ways of using the space, the BRAINMATTERS student makerthon project. Finding a space has been tough on campus due to Mohr Hall pending being closed for a new building, etc.
We can happily report that after much research and deliberation, it is looking like the south wing of the Cosmetology Building, housing two classrooms (one a former shop) several offices, and two bathrooms, will be the makerspace on campus. This is about 2000 sq. ft total!
More to follow on that. We wanted to show this trailer for this documentary on making. In the fall, we will have screenings of this movie too for the entire campus community.
