Welcome to the Reynolds MakerSpace, which is a place where students, faculty and staff at Reynolds can create and explore their own interests.

We have walk-in hours every semester and host workshops on various topics, so keep an eye out for topics you find interesting. Or propose your own workshop!

We have 3-D printers, computers to explore various software and technology, micro-controllers, electronics, and more to come like a laser cutter, CNC router, sewing machine and power tools. Come to observe, learn, teach, and create-- all in a productive hangout!
