The GSE Makery provides equipment and support for the Graduate School of Education community
to improve lives through hands-on learning.  Learn to make. Make to learn.

What equipment do we have?

Safety first!

Please watch this video about the tools and rules at the GSE Makery. 


The Makery is located on the first floor of the Center for Educational Research at Stanford (CERAS) at
520 Galvez Mall, Stanford, CA.

Open hours

The GSE Makery is currently closed to visitors, due to the shelter-in-place order. We have limited services available in support of Stanford courses. For our currently scheduled events, see the calendar at bottom of this page.

“We wanted to make it as welcoming and inclusive as possible. We want to break down the barriers for people with different levels of expertise to design and tinker.”
