Makerspace Closed Spring 2022

The SCC Makerspace is currently closed as we are moving and expanding to a new facility on campus. We plan to reopen for the Fall 2022 Semester with expanded hours, courses, workshops, and cool equipment!

The SCC Makerspace serves as a hub for innovation and collaboration, attracting those that wish to apply their skills in design, science, technology, arts & crafts, engineering, mathematics, medicine, physics, and more.

The SCC Makerspace is free and open to all currently enrolled students, faculty, and staff at SCC.

You’re welcome anytime to stop by, take a tour, and learn more. We feature workshops, trainings, events, and internship opportunities throughout the year.

We value equity, social justice, and inclusion to all in the true spirit of an empowering global maker movement and “maker culture.”
