Mt. SAC will hold a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the campus’ new Mountie Makerspace facility on Wednesday, Oct. 11, 4 p.m., at the facility in building F7. This event is open to the public.

Mountie Makerspace is a 4,000-square-foot building outfitted for collaborative and innovative projects in woodworking, metalworking, and digital fabrication. Equipped with a wide variety of machinery, the facility is open to students, staff, and the community to use on their do-it-yourself and hobbyist projects. Just some of the equipment includes mills, a lathe, a laser cutter, 3D printers, oscilloscopes, MIG/TIG welders, a logic analyzer, along with a complete tool room and much more.

Mountie Makerspace is funded through a $250,000 California Community College Maker grant from California Community College Chancellor’s Office and is part of a statewide effort to development community makerspace programs.

The Mountie Makerspace is free for students. Community members can use the space for the semester by paying a $46 fee. For more information, call Mountie Makerspace at (909) 274-5316 or email: info.mountie.makerspaceAT_gmail.com.
