WELCOME TO THE VASSAR INNOVATION LAB

What if you could use a laser to cut through solid matter? Or fly for miles without leaving the ground? What would you do with these powers? In our makerspace, we have the tools to grant you these abilities, but we need your ideas to bring them to life. Come explore the world of maker technology, including laser cutters, 3D printers, drones, virtual reality, and more. What would you like to make today?
