Discover spaces designed for creativity and experimentation.
Hands-on, experiential learning blossoms in the Thrall Family Makerspace, an open workspace designed for collaborative learning, building, and designing.
The Thrall Family Makerspace
By combining a multimedia area, a woodworking space, a 3D printing and robotics area, a kitchen, and a multi-purpose science area, the spaces are designed to meet the needs of creative students and faculty.
No matter the equipment, the mindset of a makerspace is one of exploring new areas of interest and creating realities out of ideas.
The Thrall Family Makerspace allows MPA students to learn through application, instead of simply demonstrating their expertise of concepts through application. This allows for a more deeply ingrained level of critical thinking and increases student engagement as they are more quickly able to see the outcomes and consequences playing out in front of them.
