The Lamar University Makerspace is a 7,700 square foot collaborative workspace for learning, exploring and sharing using high tech to no tech tools. The space provides access to a variety of maker equipment and is open to students who are assisted by a faculty mentor. Makerspace provides hands on learning help with critical thinking skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
