Have an Idea?
Mountie MakerSpace managers and technicians can meet with faculty individually or in groups (based on department or subject matter) to discuss potential projects, assignments or components of instruction. Please contact us to schedule a meeting or series of meetings.
If faculty, staff or community members have ideas for tools, supplies, inter-disciplinary
collaboration or anything that seems like a good fit, please join a meeting of our
Mountie MakerSpace Management Team.
Student members are welcome to apply to become members of our MakerSpace Advisory Committee. Members of the teams will be knowledgeable about many areas of making and will be very involved in the use of the space.
