The UMass Design Center together with MassDevelopment's Transformative Development Initiative [TDI] are hosting  "Make-It Springfield", a temporary "pop-up" makerspace in downtown Springfield during June 2016.

The Springfield makerspace is the latest downtown revitalization project implemented by Michael DiPasquale, Director of the UMass Design Center, as part of CAFE's  ongoing efforts to spur economic development and revitalization in the state's third largest city.

The makerspace will provide a shared space for Springfield residents, especially middle school and high school students, to create & connect through technology, the arts & media. Workshops will be presented by UMass students and faculty and include everything from music composition, to 3D printing, to flying machines.
