What is the maker movement? It's do-it-yourself, it's craft, it's hand-made, plus all the tools the 21st century can offer us. It's sewn, felted, rapid-prototyped, hewn, laser-cut, hand-finished and micro-chip controlled. It's an expression of the liberal arts at Bucknell — taking technology, culture, environment and aesthetics, and bringing it all together to create something of value uniquely your own.
