UCA Opens "Makerspace" for Students, Community

CONWAY, Ark. - A new space in Conway has opened to help people create and launch an idea through technology.
 
The University of Central Arkansas' Makerspace allows students to work alongside master makers. 
 
The space -- located on Donaghey Avenue -- features 3D printers and a laser cutter.
 
While it's on the UCA campus, Makerspace is free and open to the community as well. Anyone can register for a class and get trained on the equipment. 
 
"We're really excited about people from different disciplines, different backgrounds, people with different majors, coming together in a shared workspace to work alongside each other, solve problems and create things together," Kim Lane, Conductor and COO, said.
 
Registration starts today, September 5.
 
UCA's Makerspace is made possible thanks to a public-private partnership with the conductor, which focuses on innovation, entrepreneurship, and economic development.
