The Moffitt Makerspace is a pilot program made possible by a grant from the Student Technology Fund(link is external). ETS, the University Library(link is external) and SAIT(link is external) have partnered with b.makerspace(link is external), a collective of student design clubs, to provide a place to explore design technologies and methods for students at Cal.
The Moffitt Makerspace is a general access Makerspace on the first floor of Moffitt Library. The goal of this exciting initiative is to create opportunity for all members of the UC Berkeley community to explore maker related activities, with the lowest possible barrier of entry, and to serve as a referral point to direct participants to locations for further exploration. This initiative is meant to align with and complements the offerings of the Jacobs Institute for Design Innovation.
The Moffitt Makerspace is operated primarily by student staff and features support for core maker activities such as CAD design, 3D printing, digital prototyping with digital components (e.g., Arduino, Raspberry Pi), as well as traditional craft and hand tool based design activities for wood and fabrics. It also offers training workshops to help and guide students learning both the basics (e.g. safety and basic use of equipment, use of software applications) and more advanced tutorials for projects and guided learning activities.
