UCA's Makerspace, powered by the Conductor, is a place for students & community members to make, design and dream.
UCA's Makerspace, powered by the Conductor, is a collaborative, interdisciplinary work space with tools to prototype concepts, make new things, and take ideas to the next level. The Makerspace is a free, shared space open to people of all ages, from all disciplines. The space is equipped with six 3D printers, a laser cutter, CNC machine, routers and other digital fabrication tools, and offers Maker Trainings, classes, access to expert mentors and top-of-the-line equipment to cater to the central Arkansas community.
