Photo gallery Makerspace masks
The UW–Madison College of Engineering’s Makerspace in Wendt Commons held a workshop Oct. 24 to teach the basics of thermoforming and mold making by creating Halloween masks.
Largely student-run with 12,000 square feet of shop and flex space, the UW Makerspace strives to empower students by creating a community immersed in emerging technologies, focused on creating innovative products. Makerspace Workshops are geared toward newcomers to help them get over the hurdle of learning something new in a fun and social setting. They are open to all UW–Madison students, faculty, staff and alumni.
