Mobile Makerspaces-Carving Out Space for 3D Printing and Video Creation

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
10:00am-12:00pm

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
