A MakerSpace has been described as new amalgam of art, craft, and technology. Our goal is to serve all makers, and potential makers, in the Tulane Community. We do so by providing tools, assistance, and ideas. A discussion of the history and possible future of maker spaces can be found here

News and Updates

Fall re-opening of the MakerSpace

  • Laser Cutter Fans
  • Maker Space Entry
  • Construction is almost finished, and we'll have an Open House on October 28 at 2PM. It's likely that some tools will be available earlier in October, on a scheduled basis. In the meantime, users with urgent needs should get in touch with Dr. Walker.

    Maker of the Year

    The Maker of the Year Award, funded by a generous gift from Lary Walker (G ’76, ’79) was presented to Afsheen Sajjadi (SSE'19) on 4/22/16. His independently designed truss, fabricated on the Maker Space laser cutter, impressed the Award judges, and also Prof. Raymond, his instructor in ENGP1410. Afsheen will be helping as a Maker Ninja in the Maker Space when we re-open in Fall 2016.
