Cost

The use of the Makerspace is free to our students, employees, and community members.  Most supplies are provided at no cost.  In order to help us maintain the low costs, we encourage students to bring in some of their own materials.  We collect various project materials to help cover the cost.  We collect glass jars, tote bags, shirts, etc.  Contact a Makerspace librarian for more information at NH3D@LoneStar.edu.
