MakerSpace Mentoring

The Design Lab offers office hours where you can talk with experts, get guidance on your projects, receive feedback on your ideas, and discuss any general MakerSpace questions. Design Lab Coordinators will also provide portfolio reviews and case study edits. *No computer science homework questions.* Please note that mentoring hours are in person unless requested otherwise.
