The Makerspace

Bolstering our culture of creating

The Harvey Mudd makerspace is a student-run facility for providing access to tools, resources, space, and storage to work on extra-curricular projects. We are dedicated to making this a space where all students feel comfortable working on a variety of projects, from electronics to sewing or artistic endeavors.

Project Showcase

More Projects

LED Neon Sign

This sign was made using Led neon strip lights and a piece of acrylic with channels cut for the LEDs in the shape of a Kieth Hearing character. One layer of acrylic has the design cut out and another layer attaches behind to allow the LEDs to sit flat and have a hole for the wires. Each segment of the LED strip is soldered separately to a power distribution board on the back.

Bedazzled Cap

Katheryn made this bedazzled hat after being given the prompt, “Imagine a pink baseball cap and it was bedazzled to say “don’t talk to me I’m coding” or some coding nonsense like that..” She used the embroidery machine to write the words on a piece of fabric, which she then sewed onto the hat and surrounded with rhinestones.

Gear Fidget

This gear fidget was made using the Filament 3D printers, which spin radially—a pretty satisfying process!

Explore the Space

The makerspace contains an array of work, meeting and storage spaces as well as offices and specialized equipment.

“Creating a community of makers is really what makerspaces are all about. Whether working creatively to complete a class assignment, collaborating on a project with other members of a club, or working on a personal ‘passion project,’ it’s the students who will enliven this place and help it to grow in new and exciting directions.”
