» The Tech Shop

The Tech Shop located in the Fowler School of Engineering is home to the Boston Dynamics robot dogs, a 3D printer farm, electronics testing, and numerous industrial robotic arms.  Students across campus can use this space for research, collaborate on projects, enhance learning, and tinker.

Next to the Tech Shop is a Tool Crib where students can check out materials necessary for their projects, testing, etc. All engineering students have access to this space from the minute they begin classes at Chapman. Our goal with this space is to make it available to all who want to use it and learn.

The Tech Shop is a place for:

  • Ideas 
    No idea is too big or too small. The Tech Shop is a haven for ideas where students can refine their thought processes and arrive at a clear path to making their projects a reality. 
  • Safety
    No judgment; just growth, support, and empowerment. At the Tech Shop, every idea is welcomed even if students do not have an engineering background. All you need is a passion to make and the willingness to learn!
  • Collaboration
    Like an engineering subreddit but in real life, the Tech Shop is a co-working space where people can share knowledge and advice on each other’s projects.
  • Making
    A tech incubator within Chapman. The Tech Shop focuses on producing community-recognized projects that expose students to industry and real-life engineering.

Because entering a makerspace can be intimidating, we offer workshops to help users become familiar with different design and fabrication methods. Some of our most popular include First 3D Print, How to Make a Sticker, and Laser Cut Keychain.
