Consultation

Found makerspaces

Do you have an equipped makerspace at your location that is underutilized or not even used at all? We at Fab Lab Carnegie Science Center call these “found makerspaces.” Our team can help yours revitalize or bring such a space back online, moving toward full integration into your learning ecosystem. Consultations can be completed both in-person and virtually.

Making a Meaningful Makerspace professional development

Interested in moving your makerspace from a transactional relationship with the community to one that is transformative? Allow Fab Lab Carnegie Science Center to bring together your institution’s team and external stakeholders to truly discover the potential of a found or planned space with human-centered design techniques. Empower your team and community to create your makerspace’s mission, which drives the technology needed, rather than the other way around. This ensures that your space fits the exact needs of your site and the people who use it, encouraging efficient use of available and future resources. This working session can be completed both in-person and online.

Technical training, lesson plans, and curriculum design

Interested in how Fab Lab Carnegie Science Center can help your team master the art of making makers? Reach out to us to discuss what options are available for introductory to advanced training sessions. Further, Fab Lab Carnegie Science Center can work with your team to provide lesson plans and maker-centered activities that utilize both found and planned makerspaces that feature digital fabrication technology.

Customized packages, both in-person and virtually

If none of the above options work for your site, please reach out MakersInMotion@CarnegieScienceCenter.org to discuss what customized options and pricing may be available. We look forward to working with your team.
