Fab Now Maker Conference

Hear from TCC employees, students and community members who attended Fab Now talk about how maker culture and spaces impact education at TCC.

Creating a Culture of Making: A Learning Commons Experience


Maker culture is taking over private homes, schools, libraries and even community centers. Whether the making involves 3D printing, small electronic circuitry or traditional handicrafts, making is here! 

Join us for the 5th annual Fab Now maker conference where we explore all that making means to individuals, academia, and the community. Read about our sessions and speakers on our description and speaker bio pages. This year will also include an App-A-Thon. (for TCC students only)

This conference is in partnership with the TCC Learning Commons Principle. Learn more at
