During the Covid-19 pandemic the EPCC Makerspace was hard at work 3D Printing PPE for the El Paso and Juarez communities. We are currently giving away our surplus for free. Face Masks, Face Shields, & Ear Savers are available upon request.
From 3D Printing to Sewing to Laser Cutting to Woodshop, Makerspace’s are the perfect place to learn about anything and everything! The best part about these establishments is they are not limited to one field of study, but in fact open to everyone. Whether you’re a part of History, Math, English, Engineering, Architecture, Philosophy, or even Culinary Arts, all departments are welcome. Your previous level of background experience doesn’t matter either. Regardless of 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 prepared to equip its students with vital skills they can carry on to future jobs & careers.
Our mission is to offer a collaboration space for students and faculty. The space will provide tools, resources, training, and entrepreneurial opportunities pursued by its participants.
What is a Makerspace?
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.
In summary, 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.
