Makerspace Updates due to COVID-19:

To ensure social distancing in the Makerspace, we are limiting admittance to two patrons at a time. If you attended a certification for either 3D printing, or our laser cutter, you may make a reservation for that equipment online. Soldering equipment, the vinyl cutter, and 3D scanner are also available for reservation through that link. If you have any questions about the reservation process, please email us. 

Use of virtual reality headsets, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi is temporarily suspended.

Masks covering both the mouth and nose are required at all times in all campus buildings. Free masks are available at the Security Desk in the Science Library. Additionally, as asked of you by the university, please conduct a health self-check before entering the Science Library and Makerspace. This includes taking your temperature and staying home if you are showing any symptoms consistent with COVID-19

In compliance with UGA policy, if a Makerspace employee is showing signs consistent with COVID-19, that employee will need to stay home. We are a small staff and this may require us to close abruptly. We will make every attempt to communicate closures quickly on our web page, but if you are coming from far, the best way to check if we are open is to email us before coming in.

Workshops are open to all UGA students, staff, and faculty with a valid UGA ID. If you can't make a workshop due to a scheduled class, please email makerspace@uga.edu. Come learn, prototype, and iterate! We are a campus-wide resource supporting students, faculty, staff, and affiliates in creative making. We provide project-based learning that inspires curiosity, hands-on exploration, and innovative uses of technology. We support the UGA Libraries Strategic Plan to advance the University’s mission.

If you are interested in integrating Makerspace technologies into courses, classwork, or research, please email Andrew Johnson, Emerging Technologies Librarian.
