Faculty can now request an in-class visit from Cornell University library’s new pop-up makerspace. The easily-transported makerspace will arrive ready for class use equipped with a 3D printer and scanner, Arduino and Littlebits microelectronics kits, screen printing equipment, basic hardware tools, and more.
Introduce students to ‘making’ methodologies while giving them important, hands-on learning experiences. Academic Technologies can help you bring these new tools to your classroom!
The pop-up is also available for individual student use at libraries across campus.
All are invited to join friends and staff of the library on #TinkerThursdays from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and #FabricationFridays from 12 to 1 p.m., at a rotating lineup of campus libraries, every other week.
