Upcoming Events

Join us for the Monthly Maker Design Showcase on Friday, March 29th, 2024 from 2-4pm.

Did you design anything on the theme of "social justice" for the March Library Makerspace Design Challenge? Bring your design (or email us your designs at makerspace@humboldt.edu if you made something digital) and you can share what you worked on with other makers.

We'll also have other maker activities happening in and around the space, so if you didn't make something you can still work on a new design during the showcase. Did you make something for the past design challenges? Bring them this time, submit to our Google Form, or email them to us at makerspace@humboldt.edu to showcase your projects.


Makerspace Meetups for Fall Spring 2024

During Makerspace Meetups you can meet with other makers (like yourselves), or work on self-directed or class projects. MeetUps are casual gatherings to work on themed topics with no specific lesson plans. Meet up with us in the makerspace to chat about projects, ideas, and troubleshooting for all kinds of maker topics, or just to get connected with other people interested in being creative. No experience needed and all skill levels are welcome. Learn with beginners and more expert participants in a low-stakes environment.

Have a skill or topic you'd like to learn about in the Makerspace or want to do a pop-up maker event, offer a SkillShop on a tool, skill, or topic that you are knowledgeable about? Email us at makerspace@humboldt.edu
