Funded by a Maker Implementation Grant from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, Cabrillo’s new Makerspace is an inclusive, high-tech playground where all Cabrillo students, especially those in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) fields, along with members of the community, can collaborate, innovate and co-create.
With the support of existing and new curriculum, students will use the space to prepare for new internships and employment opportunities in regional advanced manufacturing and rapid prototyping, or launch entrepreneurial ventures of their own. Cabrillo Makerspace memberships are also available to all interested community members through Cabrillo’s Extension program.
