11:00-12:00 - One hour session
Having opened to all students and faculty in October 2016, the Maker Hub is a creative space connecting Georgetown researchers, makers and entrepreneurs from across campus with specialized equipment and a collaborative atmosphere to design, solve problems, experiment and innovate.

Recognizing that its function as a "Hub" based in the library affords it a unique opportunity to for cross-departmental collaboration, the Maker Hub has been actively reaching out across the campus to partner up with a range of class, initiatives, and students groups. The Maker Hub has hosted class sessions, run design workshops, and routinely helps students develop projects that involve 3D printing, laser cutting, and interactive electronics. We also work with "creative labs" in other departments, providing recommendations on policies and procedures, and in some cases taking on their equipment.

In this focus group, we'll share a bit about some of the partnership models we've been using, but mostly we'll brainstorm with attendees on new ways to interact. How can your programs benefit from hands-on, peer-to-peer learning? What obstacles are there for deeper interaction with the Maker Hub? How might your curriculum and programs change if you had ready access to advanced fabrication and prototyping technologies? What kind of equipment do you wish we had?

It's our hope that this session leads to new relationships, actionable input, and more excitement about the Maker Hub at Georgetown.
