Calling all 3D printing and Makerspace enthusiasts! Join LILRC for a first-hand look at mobile makerspaces from our very own Suffolk County Community College Libraries.
Mobile Makerspaces-Carving Out Space for 3D Printing and Video Creation
Thursday, August 6, 2015
Suffolk County Community College, Eastern Campus
Makerspaces provide an environment for students to create and manufacture items using a variety of low and high technology components. With library space in high demand, a model for making makerspaces mobile has been developed at the Suffolk County Community College Libraries with funding from a SUNY Innovative Instruction Technology Grant. The pilot makerspace consists of a 3D printer and Penn State’s One Button Studio. This workshop will cover the benefits and challenges of creating a mobile makerspace.
Presented by: Dana Antonucci-Durgan
