Need a creative outlet? Want to learn how to use some high-tech – or even low-tech – gadgets? Looking for a way to work with friends on a fun project? The makerspace in the Scott Northern Wake Campus library can address all of those needs and more.
The makerspace provides Wake Tech students, faculty and staff, as well as community members, tools and materials to bring their wildest ideas to life. Users can dive into hands-on learning experiences, master cutting-edge technology and work individually or in a group to overcome challenges and produce innovative items.
The following equipment is available free of charge to aspiring makers:
The makerspace is open 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday and 2 to 6 p.m. Thursday by reservation only, although some smaller pieces of equipment can be checked out and used elsewhere in the library during normal operating hours. All equipment is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Users must review makerspace guidelines and sign a liability waiver before they can access the room.
