WHAT DO WE DO

Makers Club is a group of students that meets up regularly to work on their personal projects. And in conjunction with our Makers Lab (OBK Tech Hall, N106; Open Monday-Friday 2pm-6pm) our goal is to connect artists, tinkerers, prototypers with the proper subject matter expertise to bring their ideas to life. Through the collaborative company of like-minded individuals (and frequent meetups) makers maintain the motivation they need to stay focused on their projects and meet their personal goals. Besides bi-weekly meetups and frequent workshops, we also regularly host special interest talks on popular topics.





YEARLY DUES

To join the Makers Club, a yearly due of 25 dollars is required. This is to handle any mishaps that may occur, while also paving the way for bigger, better equipment! For your 25 dollars you will get your Charger Card authorized to 'check in' to the Makers Lab (You will have to come in and set it up your first time though). This pass will be good for a full college year (Fall, Spring, and Summer) Monday through Friday 2pm-6pm.
