Cornell’s College of Engineering has launched of a new maker-themed website, CollabSpace, where members interact with other makers, learn about different engineering disciplines, share projects, learn new skills and receive mentoring from Cornell professors, graduate students and alumni. CollabSpace will help users follow their curiosity, share their strengths and improve their skills.

CollabSpace creators hope that middle school and high school tinkerers, coders and makers will join the site and find a community where they can learn and grow and explore various aspects of engineering. They hope CollabSpace will be a place for makers of all ages to share their experiences and get feedback from one another.

The site is set apart from other maker-themed sites by the presence of Cornell engineers – faculty, students and staff. By joining and sharing what you know, you will help make CollabSpace the premier online site for makers.
