Upcoming Events

Join us for the Maker Design Showcase on Thursday, October 5th, 2023 from 1-3pm.

Did you design a frog for the Library Makerspace Design Challenge for September?  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. It's not too late to make your own frog creation!

We'll also have other maker activities happening in and around the space, so if you didn't make something, may you want to get started on the October design challenge or some other cool project for your class or personal project.


Makerspace Meetups for Fall 2023

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
