Want to learn to use the tools in the Maker Hub? Awesome! Most trainings have two parts.
- First, complete the online training for the tool on Moodle. Remember, you must complete the online training before attending a Practice Project time for most tools (except Embroidery and CNC Router).
- Second, sign up for a time to visit the Hub and make your first practice project using the tool with help from a Consultant. Remember, you must do the online training first. Sign up for your Practice Project on Moodle.
We’ve created an inventory of materials available to you for free. The inventory includes a picture, the available varieties, where you can find them in each location, and if we’re stocked or out-of-stock.
NOTE: The inventory is only available to users with an active Elon username and password. This inventory is in beta and does not yet represent everything available in the Maker Hub. We’ll be adding to it all semester. We’d love to know what you think – email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you think.
