WHAT IS A MAKERSPACE?

Makerspaces come in all shapes and sizes. Makerspace at SCC is an interdisciplinary hub for learning and making at the intersection of design and technology. Aiming to step away from the traditional classroom structure and curriculum-based learning, we see learning as an inclusive space for students of all backgrounds to explore creativity and making—from design and technological innovation to building soft skills and practicing problem solving in team settings.
