Augustana is proud to be developing all new "maker spaces" on campus. A maker space is a hands-on collaborative work space designed for making, learning, exploring, and sharing using high tech and low tech tools. These spaces are currently located in the Hanson Hall of Science.
While Hanson 119 contains the more dangerous machines (including a CNC machine and a laser cutter) and has safety protocols for regulating access, Hanson 121 is an open tinkering space with more basic equipment for use (work bench, bench vises, hammers, drills, screwdrivers, etc.). Hanson 120 serves as a collaborative thinking space (for planning what to do in 119 and 121). Hanson 120 and 121 are open to the general student population.
The maker spaces also have five 3D printers available for any student to use:
All 3D printers accept and print .STL format. Software is available in the labs to create .STL files.
Contact Professor Joshua Dyer (JoshuaDyer@augustana.edu) for more information about the technology available in these spaces.
The Tredway Library also has makerspace materials available, including a 1.25" round pinback button maker.

The Tredway Library also has zine-making kits available at the circulation desk. Find more information about zines on campus here.
