The Gardner-Harvey Library TEC Lab Makerspace TEC Lab Workshop on making clocks with record albums 2017

The TEC Lab Makerspace @ the Gardner-Harvey Library is dedicated to the discovery of talents for creativity and design through the provision of tools for making. It is a place where people can come to make digital or physical items and find guidance and support for their efforts. The makerspace is committed to supporting multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary course assignments alongside independent and collaborative use of the creative activities within the space. Students, faculty and staff members, and members of the Middletown community are free to experiment with these creative arts and technologies, to learn and master new skills, and to collaborate with others in a supportive, open environment.
