Makerspace Overviews

Jacobs Makerspace Overviews includes short videos describing the services and spaces offered at Jacobs Hall.

Tool Lending Library

Jacobs Hall's newest service, the Tool Lending Library, allows qualified students the opportunity to check out select Jacobs Hall equipment for limited periods of time.

Equipment Trainings

These videos serve as supplementary materials for our hands-on equipment trainings, and can be used by student Maker Pass holders as refresher videos after gaining access to our machines.

Makerspace Tutorials

"Tutorials" are short, bite-sized how-tos on specific Jacobs Makerspace processes, machines, and skills, and will help you use the Jacobs Hall makerspaces to their fullest potential.


Workshops are long-form explorations of materials, machines, or processes of making that are available in Jacobs Hall. Check out our offerings at the beginning of each semester, and sign up while spaces last!
