Become an Elon Maker
The Maker Hub is a place with tools, supplies, and people to help you explore ideas, learn how things work and make stuff. Free and open to all Elon students, faculty and staff. We have two locations on campus and we’re always staffed by a student Consultant who’s ready to help you learn tools and talk about ideas. Stop by during our open hours and learn more!
Take a Make Break
This fall, the Maker Hub is inviting you to take a break and make something! Take & Make kits are back – these portable kits give you everything you need to make a simple project anywhere you’d like in just a few minutes. New this fall are Stay & Make kits – projects that are a little more involved and use a tool in one of the Maker Hub locations. It’s a great introduction to some of our most popular tools like laser engravers and sewing machines.
