The Cal Maritime Makerspace is a resource for making ideas a reality. By providing a range of tools, workspaces, and workshops, we strive to encourage creativity, collaboration, and endless learning. We hope to support a community of learners, innovators, designers, and collaborators.

The Makerspace is equipped for a wide variety of skills and projects, including (but certainly not limited to) sewing, 3D printing, and soldering and open to the Cal Maritime campus community, including students, staff, and faculty. It is free to use and attend workshops! If you'd like to host your own specific workshop, please let us know.

Check out our calendar to learn about our open hours and workshops.

There are so many great ideas and projects out there; we are here to help you make them come to life.
