Ball State Makerspace

Ball State University's Living Learning Makerspace is a crucible of innovation, active learning, and entrepreneurial spirit, designed to nurture the next generation of educators through hands-on, 'maker' education. This hyper-flexible, adaptable lab transcends its primary role, evolving into a vibrant community hub where students, faculty, and staff forge cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural connections.  

Designed for simplicity and adaptability, the makerspace prioritizes visibility, durability, and high functionality, ensuring an environment where both learning and scientific exploration are continuously showcased. Aptly likened to a 'Swiss Army Knife,' it remains flexible, ready to evolve with shifting educational tools and methodologies.
