makerspace The mission of the Science Library Makerspace is to foster an active learning environment that inspires curiosity, exploration, critical thought, and innovative uses of technology that complement multidisciplinary curricular activities. The Science Library Makerspace cultivates discovery and hands-on learning that enhances intellectual curiosity and student success. The Makerspace is open to all UGA students, staff, faculty, and affiliates for educational, non-commercial purposes.

The Science Library Makerspace supports the UGA Libraries Strategic Plan and advances the University’s mission. If you are interested in integrating Makerspace technologies into courses, classwork, and/or research, please email Andrew Johnson, Emerging Technologies Librarian.

    • The Science Library Makerspace offers weekly training sessions to learn 3D Printing. Instruction sessions are open to all UGA students, staff, and faculty with a valid UGA ID. These small sessions - three learners to one instructor - are one-hour, hands-on,and geared to novices. Participants learn how to customize a 3D print in TinkerCAD and use the hardware and print software for the MakerBot Replicator 3D Printer. After successful completion participants are able to work independently with the MakerBot 3D Printers in the Science Library Makerspace.
