The FHSU Makerspace is a space in the Forsyth Library that provides an area for any FHSU student or Hays community member to build, tinker and explore projects and ideas within the STEM fields. We currently host the High Altitude Balloon, Asteroid, Rocketry, and Quadcopter research groups. During our regular hours we provide access to to our 3D printers, 3D scanner, tablet computers, televisions, tools and ample workspace. We also maintain numerous projects that anyone can participate in including Lego Robotics, rocket building, hydrogen fuel cell cars and computer programming.

Upcoming Events

Super Science Sunday - 3D Animation
May 4, 2014: 2pm - 5pm

Bring your kids (K-8) to learn the basics of 3D animation through the Alice Project. Alice was developed and is currently maintained by computer scientists from Carnegie Mellon, Stanford, and the Washington University in St. Louis. This three hour workshop will teach kids how to create 3D scenes including a lunar landing and ice skating. Other projects, such as paper rockets and homemade playdough, will also be available.

The John Heinrichs Scholarly and Creative Activities Day (SACAD)
April 30th in the Memorial Union

The late Dr. John Heinrichs was not only a valued member of the Fort Hays faculty but also a friend of both the Makerspace and the annual Scholarly and Creative Activities Day. The 2014 SACAD, renamed in his honor, will be held on April 30th in the Memorial Union. The Makerspace staff will be presenting our research alongside research from across campus. We encourage students and members of the Hays community to come and see the research be conduced here at Fort Hays State University.
