The EPCC Makerspace is temporarily diverting all of its efforts and resources to helping create PPE for the El Paso community. Want to join the fight? Do you know of anyone who needs our help? Visit elpasofightingcovid.com to find out more!

From 3D Printing to Sewing to Legos to Woodshop, Makerspace’s are the perfect place to learn about anything and everything! No matter if you’ve studied the same technology for years or are interested in diving into a new trade, our Lab is created with curiosity in mind. While the concept of a Makerspace has not been around for very long, the El Paso Community College is ready to prepare its students with vital skills for their future careers.

A Makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library, or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring, and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools. These spaces are open to kids, adults, and entrepreneurs and have a variety of maker equipment including 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC machines, soldering irons, and even sewing machines.

To summarize, a Makerspace is a place where all EPCC administration, faculty, staff, and students can come to explore and learn about technology they may not had previous access to.
