Welcome to the BatLab!

Create. Innovate. Share.

The ACC Library BatLab is a pop-up makerspace for all ACC students, faculty and staff interested in doing hands-on, real-world, multidisciplinary projects in an informal, co-curricular setting.  For the Spring 2018 semester, we will be bringing the BatLab to a different campus each week.  We hope you will join us when we come to your campus!

BatLab Makerspace


ACC students, faculty and staff can take a workshop, start a project, or learn a new skill.  Just hanging out and watching or experimenting is okay, too -- there are no grades and no deadlines.  

A unique aspect of the BatLab is a supportive, multidisciplinary peer learning community.  The open makerspace is often visited by students and faculty from majors like engineering, CAD, music, computer science and electronics.  
If you're interested in robotics, wearable electronics, animatronics, automation, LED displays, the Internet of Things, or just making cool tech projects, come by and join the noise!
