MakeATX Laser Grant

MakeATX is a member based design and fabrication workshop and custom laser cutting studio. Many of the materials, displays, exhibits and models we create at MathHappens are made here. We require all interns to attend training classes at MakeATX and working at the shop is a regular part of the interns’s job.

Our laser grant is for any UTeach student interested in learning to make materials at the workshop. Students can take the training for free in exchange for two hours of work for MathHappens.

The laser capabilities allow us to make models exactly as we want them, in a desirable size and in a form that connects to the concept or problem. This is a model of the classic “Tea with Milk” problem designed by us and laser cut by us at MakeATX.
