Bethel Libraries


This Bethel Makerspace is a gathering and working space where the incarnational and inspirational meet guided by these design principles:

istudio faculty makerspace event

  • open to any Bethel student, faculty, or staff
  • flexible, interdisciplinary, multipurpose
  • creative, experimental place to build prototypes
  • hospitable and supportive environment

Infused with tools and resources for prototyping, knowledge generation, and inquiry-based learning, the Bethel community can engage with class-initiated or self-directed "hands-on" learning opportunities that they would not otherwise have and build a network of support for each other.
