Welcome to the Maker Bar, a library space for hands-on tinkering and prototyping, open to all Stanford students, faculty, and staff. We have fabrication equipment available to use within the library. Many of our Maker Bar items are also available for check out so you can tinker wherever and whenever you prefer. Need assistance? Our Maker Bar Team is available for support and consultation.
