WE AIM TO CULTIVATE AND EMPOWER
A UNC COMMUNITY AND CULTURE TO
IMAGINE, DESIGN, AND CREATE.

Beam@Carolina is a network of makerspaces where the UNC community can come together in the design and making of physical objects for education, research, entrepreneurship and recreation. We offer open studios, training workshops, host classes and group activities in spaces equipped with emerging technologies like 3D printing as well as wood and metalworking shops.
