The S.T.E.A.M. Lab Makerspace

The STEAM Lab Makerspace at the Phelps Library

 

The STEAM Lab is a DIY Education Center where students of all ages can build, learn, and experiment through both self-directed projects and Library Educator-taught classes. This makerspace is an idea lab and provides the community free access to state-of-the-art tools and technologies to imagine and create in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM).  

Within the STEAM Lab, the Phelps Library teaches award-winning and innovative classes, inspires creativity, and nurtures opportunities for the next entrepreneur, inventor or artist to emerge. Creative, hands-on STEM and STEAM workshops, including a wide variety of fiber arts, woodworking, circuitry and electronics, and virtual and augmented reality technologies, are taught on a regular basis.

To receive early notification of our monthly classes, please sign up for our newsletter by sending an email request HERE.

 

The S.T.E.A.M. Lab is open during Library hours.  Use of the space is free regardless of residency, and a library card is not required.
