Makers Movement

by David Goddard May 22, 2018

The Maker’s Club began in fall 2017 with the goal of bringing together students and faculty interested in the makers movement, a group united by the idea of people learning and maintaining practical skills that were once common but are now in danger of being lost—such as welding—and developing skills in cutting-edge techniques such as 3D printing.

Riley Toll, a freshman from Memphis and a student in the club, worked with Alex Weber, an electrical engineering student, to design a prosthetic arm for her own use, highlighting the ways that the club can make a real-world impact. The pair are now refining the arm design and plan on making a new version that will be even better for Toll’s everyday use.
