Maker Space 

  • Cuyahoga Community College Ideation Station Fab Lab 
    The Ideation Station Fab Lab at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C) will provide a pathway for innovation for students participating in academic and workforce programs and provide learning opportunities for individuals throughout the community.  The Fab Lab is a new creative space where students, employers, and the community-at-large will have access to the latest design technology.
  • CWRU think[box]
    Case Western Reserve University’s center for innovation provides a space for anyone – especially students, faculty, and alumni – to tinker and creatively invent. Housed temporarily in a 4500 square foot space, renovations are underway on a 7-story, 50,000 square foot facility that will make this $35M project one of the largest university-based innovation centers in the world.
  • Lorain County Community College Fab Lab 
    The Lorain County Community College Fab Lab is based upon the concepts of Dr. Neil Gershenfeld, the director of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Center for Bits and Atoms.  A Fab Lab is a collection of commercially avaiable machines that can be used to “make just about anything with features bigger than those of a computer chip.” Realistically, it offer the tools needed to “conceptualize, design, develop, fabricate, and test” a wide variety of things.  The best part is that the equipment is surprisingly easy to use.  Faculty, staff, students and the general public are welcome to check out the LCCC Fab Lab during its open hours.
  • TechCentral MakerSpace
    The TechCentral MakerSpace is a creative and collaborate design and fabrication space that allows you to turn your ideas into reality. The MakerSpace is available to all Cleveland Public Library and CLEVNET member library card holders.
