At Bucknell, we support the maker movement across disciplines and through a variety of spaces, resources and experts across campus.
What is the maker movement? It's do-it-yourself, it's craft, it's handmade, plus all the tools the 21st century can offer us. It's sewn, felted, rapid-prototyped, hewn, laser-cut, hand-finished and microchip-controlled.
It's a tangible expression of the liberal arts at Bucknell — taking technology, culture, environment and aesthetics and bringing it all together to create something of value uniquely your own.
We supply the tools and expertise to empower novice and experienced makers in three dedicated, on-campus makerspaces: the 7th Street Studio & Makerspace, the Maker-E and Mooney Innovation Laboratory. These makerspaces at Bucknell are open to all faculty, staff and students, and all have extended hours to support making day and night.
