UNC Charlotte’s campus makerspaces and fabrication labs welcome and celebrate all kinds of making. We hope these maker environments inspire innovative and creative learning, conceptual and design thinking, experimentation, and discovery You’ll find all kinds of ways to engage your creativity, even if you’re new to making. If you have an idea, you can make it happen here, but if you’re not there yet, come in and play until you are!
