The Wayne College Makerspace is a group of people, tools, services, and educational opportunities that encourage a community of discovering and making things. 3D design and digital fabrication via 3D printing and scanning technology is the focus of the makerspace.

Within the first semester of receiving digital fabrication equipment (3D printer technology), the makerspace has exploded with excitement and creativity. Students design their own objects for class, personal projects, and fixing/improving things at Wayne College. Instructors request objects to enhance class delivery and departmental use. Businesses receive word that Wayne College has fabrication equipment available and are requesting services. There is a continual bustle of students around this technology. The new 3D printer technology has springboarded current engineering classes, enabling students to learn computer aided design for coursework and personal projects. A variety of objects have been created to repair equipment, improve activities for ADA students & staff, and printed as prototype objects for local businesses.

Wayne College desires to expand this program well beyond its introduction. From an educational standpoint, we wish to excite students through interdisciplinary collaboration within the college, collaborations with local schools, community organizations, and businesses. From a business standpoint, we wish to offer design services to local businesses. It is important to coordinate our efforts with similar makerspace areas in the surrounding regions, encouraging community awareness through ties with local organizations.
