In 2018 I was recruited to run the Fab Lab makerspace at Portland Community College. I had initially begun working on the side for them when they asked for me to set up their new CNC mill. Working with the needs of the school setting, we created a custom enclosure for the ventilation system and enclosed the CNC with soundproofing and polycarbonate protective barrier. I also created a tutorial workshop to accompany the training materials for students and used the residual budget to revamp the 3d printers in the space. I was offered a fulltime position from there, and with much consideration, I decided to take the offer. I have been creating custom workshops and overseeing the operation of the lab ever since. For 2019 we have received a grant opportunity to expand the lab to include more robotics practices, and the Fab Lab is slated to expand into a larger facility, which should yield more opportunities for future maker explorations.
