The makerspace at Lawrence University provides access to hands-on tools and innovative equipment for the Lawrence University community to enhance the creativity of their academic work.

The makerspace guide is a helpful tool that includes instructions, tips, links to design programs and places to find 3D objects, policies, and more!
