Wilcox MakerSpace Logo with Gears

The MakerSpace is a multifunction resource for students, staff, and community members. Maker's creations can be for personal or professional use and can be anything from toys and decorations to utilities and tools.

Objects can be extremely complex (a clockwork car) or very simple (a sticker of your name). Design options are left up to the Maker with the assistance of our onsite staff. Design tools and low cost prototype materials are available to assist in the creation process.

Available Amenities

Laser Cutters
