Resources For The Learning Experience

Class of 1969 Makerspace & Instrument Shop

Carleton’s Makerspace features high-tech tools such as 3D printers, 3D scanners, and computer-controlled paper cutters, as well as ordinary, useful supplies such as Legos, foam, fabric, and glue guns.

The Instrument Shop provides mechanical design and build services to meet your needs. The shop is very well equipped and they can make almost anything. They work in wood, metal, plastic, paper, fabric, and glass.

FOCUS Program

FOCUS is a curriculum-based cohort program for students interested in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) from groups historically under-represented in the maths and sciences (based on gender, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, first-generation status, disabilities, etc).

Quantitative Resource Center

The Quantitative Resource Center helps you work with numbers in any class or comps project. (Like the Writing Center, but for numbers instead of words!) Come to the QRC for help with math + stats in non-Math/Stats classes, Excel and R, and graphs, charts, and writing about numbers.
