MakerSpace Open House at Canyon Country Campus on Oct. 26

Subject: The College of the Canyons Canyon Country campus will host an open house event to mark the opening of the college’s second MakerSpace facility, a facility dedicated to fostering creativity and the creation of manufactured works.

Both of the MakerSpace facilities have been designed as collaborative learning areas which give users free access to tools, materials, technological resources, skills training and a variety of entrepreneurial opportunities.

The MakerSpace’s mission is to enable community members to design, prototype and create manufactured works that wouldn’t be possible to create with the resources available to individuals working alone.

Event: An open house event will be held to celebrate the opening of MakerSpace at the Canyon Country campus.  The event, which is free and open to the public, will include tours of the facility, hands-on tutorials and a showcase of 3D printing demonstrations and 3D modeling software. 

Refreshments will be provided.

Time: 3 to 4:30 p.m. 

Location: College of the Canyons Canyon Country campus, Room 202A17200 Sierra Hwy., Santa Clarita
