Squishy Circuits

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 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.

"A makerspace is a place that takes from the imagination and produces reality. The purpose is to drive Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math through fun and educational interaction with a Do It Yourself environment." -Earl R. Watkins II
