2019 Goal – $12,000 Laser Cutter

Between 9 academic classes, 20+ Open Lab hours, and 3 Pop-Ups EACH WEEK the laser cutter gets used every day. With that kind of demand, we are in need of an upgrade to continue to meet the needs of our students, faculty and community.

Help us get a brand new laser cutter!
