About

What’s the Makerspace?

The BMCC Makerspace is opened to the entire BMCC community. It’s a space for bringing ideas to life – wether they be related to design, art, engineering, fashion etc. – with the help of 21st century tools such as 3D printing and laser cutting.

The space was built with collaboration in mind – professors and students from all departments are invited to use the space. Our goal is to foster a sense of community amongst “Makers” of all sorts.

Wether you have a project in mind or are just curious about the space and want to learn more, please come and visit us! Visit the schedule page for open hours and contact Professor Anna Pinkas (apinkas@bmcc.cuny.edu)  for more information.
