This page lists the Maker Hub's upcoming events and describes the process for hosting an event.
Fall 2022 Events
Santa's Workshop (December 1st & 2nd // 4-7pm both days)
This event is open to the whole GFU community. Attendees can come to the Maker Hub and make small Christmas gifts for their friends/family. This year's making stations include custom Christmas socks/aprons, foam-cut Christmas decorations, pyrography (wood burning), leatherworking, and coin ring making. A full description of each station can be found here: Santa's Workshop Station Descriptions 2022.
Wobble Off (December 8th // 5-8pm)
Come to the Maker Hub and watch first-year engineering students showcase their oscillating air engine designs and compete for maximum speed, coast, air efficiency, power, and craftsmanship. Air engine displays start at 5pm; the competition starts at 6pm.
Winter Networking Reception (December 9th // 4-6pm)
It’s not your typical career fair... Companies will set up at small bistro tables in the Maker Hub, and upper-level engineering and computer science students will roam The Hub and introduce themselves with a handshake, a business card, and a resume to discuss internship and employment opportunities.
Can I Host an Event in the Maker Hub?
Maybe. The Maker Hub is not a generic event space that can be reserved by anyone. Maker Hub events need to serve the goals and purposes of the Maker Hub and/or the Industrial Enterprise. These goals include (but are not limited to) education, academic support, student/employee engagement, outreach, and marketing. The leader(s) of an event must have a connection to the Maker Hub. For students, this means that the students leading the event must at least be Maker Hub users; however, it is preferred for student leaders to be Maker Hub volunteers/aces/work-study staff. Any events involving equipment usage by untrained individuals MUST be supervised by student volunteers/aces/work-study staff or GFU employees. Any events involving equipment or tool usage must obtain signed Maker Hub waivers from attendees before they participate.
All events that will be held in the Maker Hub need approval from the Maker Hub staff. The Maker Hub staff members reserve the right to decline/terminate any event at their discretion.
