Starting 6/28, we will once again offer glassworking training as part of Tier 2. Anyone who has passed their Tier 1 one checkoff can now sign up and learn to make marbles, pendants, and more!
Glassworking Resumes Next Week!
Summer Trainings Start Next Week!
Starting Monday, June 19th, our summer mentors will run Tier 1 trainings and checkoffs for all current undergrads! That means members of the Class of 2020 who did not get trained yet as well as members of the Class of 2018 and Class of 2019 who could not previously get trained will have a chance to learn how to use laser cutters, 3D printers, and hand tools. Start your maker training process with a short safety quiz and then check your email for a link to sign up for trainings. We'll be adding more slots as the summer goes on, so if you don't find a slot that works for you, check back later!

Good luck and have fun during the spring semester!
Part of Project Manus, the MakerLodge is an initiative staged by Prof. Martin Culpepper with the goal of training every incoming freshman on introductory maker technology, including but not limited to: 3D printers, laser cutters, and hand tools. We invite all members of the class of 2020 to take our safety quiz and sign up for training after September 12th, 2016.
MakerLodge training may open up to other makers in the spring.
