MakerLab Featured in Emerging Tech. Report

The new Illinois Emerging Technology Report (created by Jamie Nelson) prominently features the MakerLab as an exemplar of the emerging Maker Movement on the University of Illinois campus. According to this report, "The University of Illinois and surrounding community have embraced, and is at the forefront of, the Maker Movement."This report includes a set of videos in which Executive Director, Aric Rindfleisch describes our Lab's history and purpose, our educational offerings, and our outreach mission. In addition to highlighting our Lab, this report also references two of our makerspace partners, the Champaign-Urbana Community FabLab and the Makerspace Urbana. As noted in this report, our Lab "contains the highest number of 3D printers available in one place on campus and is open to the university and community alike." Indeed, our Lab is open not just for Illinois students, staff, and faculty, but also to all members of our community. So, if you would like to find out more about the Maker Movement, please feel free to stop by. emerging_tech_report_logo02
