Makerspace

The Makerspace is currently unavailable for student use, but some makerspace equipment is available for checkout on a limited basis. Please use our technology request form to inquire about an item’s availability.

For spring semester, 2021 METRC staff can provide 3D printing services on request for College of Education and Psychology students, staff, and faculty. Submit your request via this link: https://go.ncsu.edu/metrc3dprint. Typically, the space is restricted to College of Education and Psychology students, staff, and faculty. Training from our staff is required prior to using 3D printers.

The NC State College of Education METRC makerspace provides equipment and materials for students, faculty and staff to learn with hands-on materials and innovative technology. When open, visitors can put together circuits, make a button, use Legos to be creative, print in 3-D, and more.

For lesson plan ideas, instructional videos, etc. go to https://ncsucedmetrc.weebly.com/stem-collaborations.html

Contact Laura B. Fogle to learn more about what’s available and plan lessons together.
