The Deason Innovation Gym is a student-centered makerspace filled with both high tech and common tools and materials. Once oriented, students gain 24/7 access to the space. They welcome all SMU students, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, from across campus. With a little training, students can use the 3D printers, laser cutter, CNC carving machine, vinyl cutter and power tools to create objects and complete projects, both personal and for class.
I was able to build on the momentum of my predecessors to focus on the design of the culture of the DIG as well as the learning experiences we created for students.
