About

First and foremost; Makerspaces are people first communities. It’s always better to pop in and say hello, ask a question, or get an idea in person. Then…

If you’ve never been here before and are looking for where to start, start with the service desk. If you’re just here to find out when a makerspace student engineer (MSE) is on duty or when a makerspace program is taking place check out the calendar. Otherwise, take a look around and see what’s been going on in our image gallery, our video gallery & at our resources page (all of which is in the menu above ).

About the Makerspaces

Our Mission
The mission of the Makerspaces at William & Mary is to promote interdisciplinary collaboration alongside tools and resources of the modern age in an effort to amplify the community’s productive, innovative and entrepreneurial efforts & spirit.

Values

The Makerspaces value a community within which people having diverse interests come together to collaborate and work towards productive goals. The Makerspaces can be viewed as community prototyping, fabrication and engineering centers incorporating elements of machine shops, research labs, workshops and art studios where makers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and prototype their ideas. The Makerspaces are where people with vastly different experiences collide on common interests, resulting in an output of innovative thinking, doing, and making.
