Designing & Planning a Campus Makerspace

STEAM Week | Makerspaces | Session 1 of 3

The idea of “makerspaces” is a popular trend related to active, collaborative learning. Makerspaces can take many forms and are loosely defined as physical locations or studios for hands-on experimentation, building prototypes, and otherwise testing ideas. What are the factors that need to be considered when designing and furnishing these spaces? June Hanley, principal planner for HDR, a firm specializing in engineering, environmental and construction services with 200+ offices around the globe, will highlight the main considerations for the design and planning of these spaces.

Our panelists:

  • June Hanley, Principal Planner, HDR
  • Moderator: Shannon O’Connor, Editor, College Planning & Management
