Lamar University's Makerspace is representative of the most familiar aspects of makerspace culture and is a great place to experience hands on design. Makerspace offers emerging technologies for all students, staff, and faculty to use. With our instruments, you can make anything you ever wanted to and more! We may have some supplies for some of these items, but we do not provide supplies for completing projects, you will need to supply your own materials.
