The Maker-E is a creative space for learning about and working on electronics, programming, and similar projects.  The Maker-E is located in room 111 of Dana Engineering and is open to all students, faculty and staff throughout the academic year. The Maker-E has everything you need to learn electronics or create your own projects including:  fabrication, computer aided design, measurement, and meeting spaces along with a large reconfigurable space. These areas are equipped with a wide range of tools and high tech devices.

The Maker-E is open on a 24/7 basis to anyone at Bucknell who has registered to use the space.  The Maker-E has full-time staff available from 8am – 5 pm Monday through Friday.  Student technicians are available during evenings and weekends.  Please see the tech schedule below.  The Maker-E staff is there to help you with safe and effective use of the lab equipment.

The Maker-E is meant to empower students, staff, and faculty to work on a wide range of projects for both their academic and intellectual growth, and to facilitate collaborations and friendships.

Spring 2024 Maker-E Tech Hours:
Update 1/01/2024

Please note that while the Maker-E is open year-round, there are no student technician hours during the summer.  The Lab Director will continue to be available Monday – Friday, 7am – 3:30pm.

The Maker-E is for academic use in furtherance of Bucknell’s mission as a residential-based institution of higher education.  Such “academic use” is broadly defined and is not limited to activities that are performed directly in connection with coursework, student research or faculty scholarship.  Rather, academic use includes activities that allow faculty to explore concepts they believe might be relevant to future teaching or scholarship at Bucknell, that allow students to engage in activities that support their academic growth, and that allow faculty or staff to work with students in a manner that furthers Bucknell’s residential education model.  The Maker-E should not be used for commercial endeavors or activities that do not have a stated goal in furtherance of Bucknell’s academic mission.
