Fostering a Place for Invention and Creation: Two Approaches to Makerspaces on Campus


Learn how two institutions provide space for fabrication and collaboration with access to advanced tools such as 3D printers and laser cutters. Case Western Reserve University's think[box] and the North Carolina State University Libraries' Makerspace offer interdisciplinary creation spaces and services. Think[box] offers a large-scale approach with a 4,500-square-foot space that will eventually move to a 50,000-square-foot facility while the NCSU Libraries' Makerspace is a small space located within an academic library. Representatives from both institutions will share details about equipment and examples of student-created projects and discuss the role of creation spaces on campus in support of innovative learning and entrepreneurship.
