Proctor Makerspace

We support the idea of a Makerspace and think it would be a good idea for the campus.

More than 50% of colleges and jobs require knowledge of tools

Harvard

Harvard University has a Makerspace. Some Proctor students are looking into going to Harvard. They would like to have a space so they can learn about the tools and how they work so that they can go to the University with background knowledge.
