The REEF Makerspace (Reimagining Experiential Education and Fabrication) offers an experiential approach to knowledge at the intersection of Art, Culture, and Science using a myriad of state-of-the-art equipment. REEF strives to create a welcoming community environment for everyone. 

The REEF team consists of Makerspace Director Christine Braun and Manager Joe Kile, and is one component of the Teaching and Learning group.

The REEF Makerspace is a unit of the Teaching and Learning group, which also oversees the Active Learning Labs, and a set of instructional shops.
