What is a Makerspace?

The NC State College of Education METRC Makerspace provides equipment and materials for College of Education and Psychology 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. Some Makerspace equipment is also available for checkout. Please use our technology request form if you’d like to check out class sets of equipment.
